Shaking Down the Thunder From the Sky: Part 2 of Notre Dame's Challenge to the Contraception Mandate

Ryan N. Parsons of Foley & Lardner LLP, Milwaukee, posted on the history and latest developments in this Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) case, at Wisconsin Appellate Law.
"As was true back in 2014, the court [U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit] remained skeptical of the link between Notre Dame’s actions (filling out a form noting its religious objections to contraceptives and sending the form to its insurance administrator) and the resulting actions (the administrator then providing the contraceptives directly to the insured [employee]). Consequently, the court ruled that Notre Dame did not meet its burden of showing that its religious beliefs were substantially burdened by the contraceptive mandate."
