6th Circuit Affirms Ruling for ACA’s Contraceptive Coverage Rules; 10th Circuit Issues Stay on Rules
The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has affirmed its prior judgment that accommodations to the Affordable Care Act's contraceptive coverage rules for not-for-profits that hold themselves out as religious do not violate the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. Meanwhile, the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals has granted a request to stay its earlier ruling upholding the accommodations while opponents of the contraceptive coverage rules ask the Supreme Court to consider their case.
