Another Religious College Gets Relief Against ACA Contraceptive Mandate Rules

Consistent with a number of other recent district court opinions, a Pennsylvania federal district court in Geneva College v. Azar, (WD PA, July 5, 2018), issued a permanent injunction against applying the Affordable Care Act contraceptive coverage mandate rules to Geneva College to the extent that the college has religious objections to compliance. The Trump Administration has conceded that applying the Obama Administration's accommodation rules to religious non-profits would violate the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.  ADF issued a press release announcing the decision.
