On Friday, March 28, 2014, the ACS Puget Sound Lawyer Chapter will host a briefing on Conestoga Wood Specialties v. Sebelius and Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, two cases that involve religious exemption claims raised by for-profit corporations and their owners to the provision of the Affordable Care Act that requires employers to provide preventive health care, including contraception, to employees without cost sharing. Both cases will be argued together before the Supreme Court on March 25th. Our featured speaker, Prof. Fred Gedicks of BYU Law School, submitted an amicus brief in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, which supports the U.S. government's position in that case. Additionally, he has authored an ACS Issue Brief on this topic. Prof. Gedicks is an active Latter-day Saint, however he rejects the use of the government to promote religion.
