A federal judge on Wednesday ruled that the Archdiocese of New York may proceed with a lawsuit challenging the HHS mandate that could cost the archdiocese nearly $200 million in fines each year.
Eric Baxter, Senior Counsel for the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, said the court recognized the “significant harm that the mandate is causing right now.”
“Religious organizations that object to the mandate are subject to private lawsuits, as well as being faced with critical budgeting, and health insurance decisions in the face of millions of dollars in fines,” Baxter continued. “Truly the ‘safe harbor’ is neither a harbor nor safe.”
