Supreme Court Rules In Favor Of Hobby Lobby

 
Posted Monday, June 30th 2014 @ 10am

The U.S. Supreme Court says some private companies with religious objections do not have to provide prescription contraceptive coverage to employees.  The 5-4 decision deals a blow to the birth control mandate in the healthcare reform law.  Hobby Lobby challenged the requirement, arguing that it violates religious freedom.  The mandate in the healthcare law applies to companies with 50 or more employees.  Hobby Lobby is an arts and crafts retail chain.  The ruling applies to "closely-held" companies, which are private entities that are owned by only a few people.
