Great news: Supreme Court vacates adverse ruling against Autocam

john kennedy-autocamWell, you know about Hobby Lobby. And you might also know that Conestoga Wood was joined in with the Hobby Lobby case.

And if you’re a regular reader of this blog, you know that a third for-profit corporation made it to all the way to the Supreme Court. That was Autocam, a Michigan-based company who was represented by the CatholicVote.org Legal Defense Fund.

Victory came yesterday for Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood. And today we have a victory for Autocam.

The Supreme Court vacated the adverse decision against Autocam and stated that “the case is remanded to the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit for further consideration in light of Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc.”

Let’s hope that this federal court in Cincinnati gets it right and doesn’t try to get around the Supreme Court’s ruling in the Hobby Lobby case.

    MorganB,

    Actually, the Constitution is fine. The Court ruled that in this case where two laws conflicted, ACA and the Freedom Restoration Act (I’m wrong on the title I know), that the Government had other options to ensure that the good they wanted for the nation (free contraception) was available without trampling on sincere religious beliefs. When two laws are in conflict, that’s what courts are supposed to do (and this point is being lost in almost all commentary I’ve seen).

    By the way, the religious freedom law was signed by President Bill Clinton.

    I call it Judicial Autocracy. Matches well with Citizens United where a slim majority of Federal judges decide for the vast majority. What is really strange is that the Evangelically run Hobby Lobby does not align totally with the Catholic Church on birth control. The Supreme Court has, once more, cast aside our Constitution.
