Christian Indiana companies may benefit from Hobby Lobby’s outcome

The U.S. Supreme Court in Burwell vs. Hobby Lobby left the decision whether to provide coverage for certain types of birth control to the employer, having an immediate effect on that Oklahoma-based company. However, some Indiana employers also had a vested interest in the outcome of that case. Madison-based Grote Industries and University of Notre Dame in South Bend were among dozens of employers nationwide filing complaints against the Department of Health and Human Services. Many of those employers sought similar relief from the implementation of that part of the Affordable Care Act, commonly called Obamacare. Hobby Lobby, Grote and other family-owned, closely held corporations argued that provision of the ACA violated their First Amendment right to free speech and their rights under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993.
