Seventh Circuit Ruling on Contraception Mandate Deepens Circuit Split

The National Law Journal: Ruling Against Contraception Mandate Deepens Circuit Split, by Sheri Qualters:

A federal appellate ruling barring enforcement of the Affordable Care Act’s law's mandate that employer-provided health insurance cover contraception and related services has deepened the appellate split over that issue.

A divided panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit ruled on Nov. 8 that Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 claims against the mandate were “very likely to succeed.” . . .

Last week’s ruling put the appellate tally at 3-2 in favor of plaintiffs opposed to the mandate. The Tenth Circuit held that a company could be a "person" exercising religion in this context and the D.C. Circuit similarly sided with owners of a company. . . .
