the Hobby Lobby case

As the Supreme Court term ends the big cases get decided.  In its 5-4 decision in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores the Supreme Court today agreed with Hobby Lobby which claimed that contaceptive coverage required by the Affordable Care Act conflicted with their owner’s religious principles and that under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 they should thus be exempted from providing such coverage.
