Case Summary

On May 21, 2012, the Catholic Bishops of Joliet, IL and Springfield, IL, on behalf of their respective dioceses, along with several affiliated Catholic organizations, filed a lawsuit in the Northern District of Illinois against the Federal Government under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (42 U.S.C. § 2000bb), the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. § 706(2)), and the First Amendment.

On May 21, 2012, the Catholic Bishops of Joliet, IL and Springfield, IL, on behalf of their respective dioceses, along with several affiliated Catholic organizations, filed a lawsuit in the Northern District of Illinois against the Federal Government under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (42 U.S.C. § 2000bb), the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. § 706(2)), and the First Amendment. Plaintiffs, represented by private counsel, seek to enjoin enforcement of provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) extending universal contraception coverage in employer-sponsored private health insurance coverage. Plaintiffs contend that this mandatory contraception coverage violates their sincerely held religious beliefs.

On February 8, 2013, the court (Judge John W. Darrah) granted defendants' motion to dismiss for lack of standing and ripeness. The court noted that the Federal Government had indicated in the Advanced Notice of Proposed Rule Making (ANPRM) its intention to amend the regulation. And while these amendments did not eliminate the possibility of imminent injury to the Plaintiffs, it did impact the likelihood of injury such that it was not "certainly impending." The court also held that the Plaintiffs inability to plan for the future based on the uncertain law did not impact their daily business.
