Diocese of Cheyenne Goes to Supreme Court

The Catholic Diocese of Cheyenne has taken their case against the Affordable Care Act to the Supreme Court.

They have filed what is known as an “EMERGENCY APPLICATION FOR INJUNCTION

PENDING APPELLATE REVIEW.”

This would halt any enforcement of the birth control provisions of the health care law, while the case is going through the appeals process.

The Diocese lost their initial case against the Department of Health and Human Services when U.S. District Judge Scott Skavdahl wrote that… “the Catholic groups are wrong to believe they are forced to contract with a third-party insurance provider of contraceptive products and services.”

“Plaintiffs have not established a likelihood of success on the merits or a likelihood of irreparable injury on their RFRA claim because they have not shown the ACA’s accommodation to be a substantial burden upon their religious exercise,” he wrote.
