Documents: Read Hobby Lobby’s Affordable Care Act Lawsuit

Earlier this morning, we threw up a post about Hobby Lobby’s lawsuit over the Affordable Care Act’s birth control mandate. The company’s founding family says the health care law, which went into effect Aug. 1, violates their religious beliefs because it requires the company to provide insurance that covers morning-after pills and other “abortion-causing” birth control products.

The mandate, according to the suit, “would force religiously motivated business owners like Plaintiffs to violate their faith under threat of millions of dollars in fines.”

We’ve uploaded the entire federal court filing for your perusal, and we’re highlighting some interesting/important parts.
