Sixth Circuit Denies For-Profit Eden Foods' Right to Refuse To Comply with Contraceptive Mandate

RH Reality Check: Sixth Circuit Issues Strong Opinion Against For-Profit Religious Rights in Eden Foods Case, by Jessica Mason Pieklo:

. . .On Thursday, the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals . . . in Eden Foods v. Sebelius . . . held the individual plaintiffs lacked standing to challenge the mandate and that the for-profit, secular corporate plaintiff was not a “person” under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. Following its earlier decision in Autocam, the court affirmed the denial of a preliminary injunction that would have blocked the Obama administration from enforcing the mandate against Eden Foods and sent the case back to the lower court to be dismissed for a lack of jurisdiction. . . .

The opinion is available here.
