10th Circuit Court of Appeals hears Hobby Lobby v. Sebelius

This past Thursday, the full eight-judge panel of the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals heard Hobby Lobby’s request for an injunction against the Department of Health and Human Services.  Hobby Lobby, as we have noted previously, is a large company owned by Evangelical Christians.  

In December, a smaller panel of the 10th Circuit Court denied Hobby Lobby’s request for injunctive relief.  On July 1st, Hobby Lobby could be fined up to $1.3 million a day for non-compliance with the HHS mandate.  Hobby Lobby employs 13,000 people throughout the United States.  I wonder how many of those people will lose their jobs, should the HHS mandate stand and Hobby Lobby be forced to pay the fines.
