Prof. Hawley and the Becket Fund Ask Supreme Court to Review Hobby Lobby case

October 28th, 2013

Prof. Joshua Hawley

Prof. Joshua Hawley and the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty have asked the Supreme Court of the United States to decide whether Hobby Lobby and other for-profit businesses may exercise the right to religious freedom by declining to fund contraceptives and abortion-inducing drugs in their government-mandated healthcare plans.

Hobby Lobby is a family owned corporation whose owners, the Green family, have a religious objection to funding drugs that may induce abortions. Hobby Lobby won a preliminary injunction from the Tenth Circuit in June. Last month, the U.S. Department of Justice asked the Court to review the grant of the injunction and to decide the merits of the case.
