Hobby Lobby Continues Challenge to HHS

On Thursday of this week, Hobby Lobby presented its case to the full 10th Circuit Court of Appeals for relief from the HHS contraception and abortion-inducing drug mandate. 

Kyle Duncan, General Counsel for the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, which is representing Hobby Lobby, stated earlier this spring, “Full court review is reserved only for the most serious legal questions. This case asks whether the First Amendment protects everyone’s right to religious freedom, or whether it leaves out religious business owners like the Greens.”

Hobby Lobby, a chain of more than 500 arts and crafts stores in 41 states, could face federal fines of $1.3 million per day for its refusal to comply with the HHS mandate.
