(KLTV)- Another big ruling is expected regarding President Obama’s healthcare law.
Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor temporarily blocked a part of the law, which requires religiously affiliated employers to provide insurance plans that cover contraception at no cost. Justice Sotomayor’s temporary injunction ordered the Obama administration to respond by 9 A.M. CT Friday morning.
The last minute decision to block the contraception portion of the law came after nearly 100 religiously affiliated groups had filed lawsuits against that portion of the mandate. Justice Sotomayor specifically responded to a request from a group of nuns based in Denver known as Little Sisters of the Poor, who argue the requirement violates their civil rights.
Following the Obama administration’s response, the temporary injunction could either be lifted or made permanent.
