PITTSBURGH - A federal judge in Pennsylvania on Nov. 27 dismissed a challenge to the contraception mandate contained in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), 111 P.L. 148, brought by a group of Catholic organizations, saying the claims are not ripe for judicial review (Most Reverend David A. Zubik, et al. v. Kathleen Sebelius, No. 12-676, W.D. Pa.; 1012 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 167737).
