Hobby Lobby Lawyer, Women's Group React To Birth Control Ruling
Monday, June 30, 2014
The U.S. Supreme Court wrapped up its term with a bang today, issuing two major decisions.
In one case, the court ruled that closely-held corporations, usually family-owned businesses like Hobby Lobby — the national arts and crafts chain that brought the suit — cannot be required to provide coverage for birth control methods that they object to for religious reasons.
Here & Now gets reaction from both sides of that case: Luke Goodrich was part of the team that argued Hobby Lobby’s case, and Judy Waxman is with the National Women’s Law Center.
