U.S. Supreme Court sides with Hobby Lobby
By Tribune staff
WASHINGTON, D.C. — In a closely watched case, the Supreme Court of the United States has ruled in favor of Hobby Lobby in the Burwell vs. Hobby Lobby case, according to multiple news sources.
The case arose when Obamacare mandated that the business provide birth control for employees and the devoutly Christian owners of Hobby Lobby objected on religious grounds.
The high court has ruled that closely held corporations cannot be forced to provide contraception to employees over their own religious objections. The decision came in a 5-4 split vote.
