Catholic-owned Michigan company wins

A federal district court judge in Ann Arbor, Michigan, granted a Michigan business, Weingartz Supply Co., a temporary injunction from the Health and Human Services’ contraceptive mandate.

The judge also dismissed a lawsuit filed by a nonprofit Catholic group, Legatus, because he said the religious organization qualified for the Obama administration’s temporary “safe harbor” from having to comply with the mandate. But he also stipulated the federal government must provide monthly updates on the status of the process for amending final regulations covered by the safe harbor period.

Daniel Weingartz, president of the supply company, which sells outdoor power equipment and employs approximately 170 people, is a Catholic who says the mandate conflicted with his faith.
