Supreme Court Cleans Up Docket After Hobby Lobby Decision

Today the U.S. Supreme Court did a clean-up of pending Affordable Care Act contraceptive mandate cases brought by for-profit companies now that the Court has handed down its decision in Hobby Lobby. The Court denied certiorari in cases: Department of Health and Human Services v. Gilardi, (Docket No. 13-915); Burwell v. Newland (Docket No. 13-919); and Burwell v. Korte (Docket No. 13-937). In three other pending petitions for review the Supreme Court granted certiorari and summarily vacated the Court of Appeals decisions, remanding each case to the Court of Appeals for further consideration in light of Hobby Lobby.  The cases are: Autocam Corp. v. Burwell, (Docket No. 13-482); Gilardi v. Department of Health and Human Services, (Docket No. 13-567); Eden Foods, Inc. v. Burwell, (Docket No. 13-591). All of these actions are noted in today's Order List.)
