Federal Appeals Court Grants Injunction Pending Appeal In Birth Control Suit

WASHINGTON, D.C. - In reconsidering a previous decision, a District of Columbia Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals panel on March 29 granted a motion for injunction pending appeal in a case in which a secular, for-profit food company and the company owners are challenging the implementation of a mandate contained in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) aimed at providing free preventive services to women, including those for birth control (Francis A. Gilardi, et al. v. United States Department of Health and Human Services, et al., No. 13-5069, D.C. Cir.; See 3/6/13, Page 5).
