District Court Finds New Rules on Contraceptives to Be Too Demanding for Religious School
SCOTUSblog Link to more items from this source
Oct. 28, 2014
"The Obama administration's attempt last summer to find a new way to give religious non-profit groups an exemption from the new health care law's mandate for birth-control services did not go far enough, a federal judge in Florida decided in a temporary ruling on Tuesday.... Ave Maria University sent HHS a written notice that it was a religious organization and that it was claiming the exemption, but it did not include any information about the insurer of its employee health plan, did not provide information for contacting the insurer, and did not name its plan or identify its type. Organizations like Ave Maria University have contended that it would violate their religions to do anything to implement the birth-control mandate to which they object for religious reasons, beyond simply claiming the exemption -- period." [Ave Maria University v. Burwell, No. 13-cv-630-JSM-CM (M.D. Fla. Oct. 28, 2014)]
