Big Win for Religious, Closely-Held Corporations Under Obamacare

Brody and Associates, LLC • July 24, 2014
The U.S. Supreme Court released one of its biggest decisions since it struck down the Defense of Marriage Act one year ago, captioned Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., 189 L. Ed. 2d 675 (U.S. 2014). In the first decision of its kind, the Court held closely-held corporations can exercise religion, are afforded religious freedom under the law, and are therefore not required to pay for employees’ birth control in the face of religious objections. To understand this, we need to turn back over 200 years.
