I mentioned this morning that the Supreme Court would announce its decision in a challenge to the ObamaCare mandate which required employers to provide contraceptive services to all female employees. Hobby lobby is a crafts firm owned by evangelicals with deeply held beliefs and the owners of that firm objected to the law’s mandate that it provide abortofacients to employees.
The court ruled 5 to 4 in favor of the company. I thought that the ruling was rather narrow as it applies to closely held companies. Jonathan Turley is a law Professor and blogger and he opines that the ruling is sweeping and opens to door for many new legal challenges to this law and other laws.
