More on Hobby Lobby v. Sebelius

      Last November, the District Court for the Western District of Oklahoma issued its decision in Hobby Lobby Stores v. Sebelius, 870 F. Supp.2d 1278 (W.D. Okla. Nov. 19, 2012), wherein it held that Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc. was not likely to prevail on the merits of its argument that aspects of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act requiring it to cover contraceptives in the health insurance plan provided its employees violated rights protected by the Free Exercise Clause of the Constitution.

      The Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals, before a panel of eight as contrasted with the typical three judges, heard oral arguments on the appeal of this case on May 23, 2013.
