High Court Could Weigh In on Contraception

The Supreme Court is expected to decide at a Nov. 26 conference whether to take up one or more of the following cases related to the Obama administration’s contraception rule:

Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores Inc.

The Justice Department is asking the court to review a case brought by the arts and crafts chain Hobby Lobby and Christian bookstore chain Mardel, both founded by an evangelical Christian family. The companies agree that the high court should take up the case.

Conestoga Wood Specialties Corp. v. Sebelius

A business run by a Mennonite family that makes wooden parts for kitchen cabinets is asking the court to review its case, but the government has asked the justices to hold the petition and then move forward based on its decision in the Hobby Lobby suit.

Autocam Corp. v. Sebelius

Companies that make auto parts and medical devices, which are owned by a Roman Catholic family, want the court to weigh in on their case; the Justice Department opposes the high-court review.

Liberty University v. Lew

A Christian university wants the court to review a broader case that includes a challenge to the health care law’s employer mandate, but the government is asking the justices to deny the petition.
