WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court is offering a short-term compromise to continue to exempt a group of Denver nuns that operates charity nursing homes from the birth control mandate of the nation’s health care law.

The court is asking them to declare in writing that they have religious objections to providing that coverage. The nuns had said earlier that a government form they were being asked to sign violates their religious beliefs.

The order crafted by the high court on Friday would keep in force Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s order to hold off the contraceptive coverage requirement of the Affordable Care Act.
