Hobby Lobby Petitions High Court on HHS Mandate

Ad Feedback

A battle against the Affordable Care Act's contraception coverage mandate could be fought in the U.S. Supreme Court.

Attorneys for Hobby Lobby are asking the high court to hear its case.

The craft store chain is owned by the Green family, who says the policy forces them to violate their Christian beliefs or pay millions in fines. It requires the company to provide insurance that includes contraception, including abortion-inducing drugs.

A U.S. District Court temporarily exempted the Green's businesses from the mandate in July. They also own Mardel Christian bookstore.

The Department of Health and Human Services then filed a notice in federal court to appeal that decision.
