Mennonite company wins temporary relief from HHS mandate

Conestoga Wood Specialties Corporation of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, was granted temporary relief from enforcement of the HHS mandate by a U.S. District Court judge last week.  The company, with nearly 1,000 employees, is owned and operated by Mennonites, who believe that contraception is immoral.  

The court granted Conestoga Wood Specialties a two-week reprieve and ordered all attorneys to be in court on Friday for more hearings.  Without the reprieve, the mandate would have gone into effect for this company on January 1st.  The company faced $95,000 each day in fines for not complying with the mandate, yet complying with the mandate would violate their faith.
