DC appeals court grants injunction to Ohio businesses against HHS mandate

The District of Columbia Appeals court has reversed itself and granted an injunction to two Ohio companies, who are thereby relieved from adhering to the HHS mandate.  As we noted in January, Freshway Foods and Freshway Logistics, Ohio produce processing, packaging, and transportation companies, are owned by the Galardi family.  These Ohio companies employ 340 and 55 people, respectively.  The Galardis are Catholic and believe that the government forcing them to buy contraceptives, sterilization, and abortion-inducing drugs forces them to violate their faith.  The companies face crippling fines if they refuse to violate their faith: $40,000 per day or $14.4 million per year.  Both companies’ insurance renewal date is the 1st of April.
