Judge blocks implementation of insurance coverage for birth control
A federal judge has temporarily blocked the requirement of most employers to provide employees birth control coverage as part of their health insurance, MLive reported.
The decision came after the judge ruled implementing the requirement could be seen as an infringement on the religious rights of family-owned Weingartz Supply Co., which has a store in Scio Township, west of Ann Arbor. He said the company showed some likelihood of winning at trial.
The president of the outdoor power equipment company designed a health plan to exclude contraception coverage in order to observe the company's Catholic beliefs.
