Don’t Care: Private Company Gets Temporary Block on Contraception Mandate

29 Nov

The next round of lawsuits against the Affordable Care Act (ie. Obamacare) are starting to make news and headlines. The latest news come from a suit filed by Frank O’Brien and O’Brien Industrial Holdings. The suit is being heard by a three judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit.

The court has decided to approve a motion for a preliminary injunction which was filed. The injunction will temporarily block mandate requiring the Missouri business owner to provide contraception. Many against Obamacare are taking this as a small but significant victory.

Francis Manion, Senior Counsel of the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) stated, “By granting our motion, the appeals court blocks the implementation of the HHS mandate and clears the way for our lawsuit to continue – a significant victory for our client.”

The O’Brien case was initially dismissed by a federal court at the Obama Administration’s request. However, the ACLJ filed an appeal on O’Brien’s behalf and the case ended up in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit.
