SCOTUS Asks For More Briefs On Birth Control Access Issue Before Court

On March 29, the Supreme Court of the United States asked attorneys on both sides of the Zubik v. Burwell case to submit additional briefs on how each would propose providing access to birth control for employees of religious nonprofits without the involvement of the employer.  The briefs are due by April 12.

The Supreme Court heard oral arguments last week in Zubik v. Burwell, a group of seven cases in which nonprofits are challenging the current government offered alternative to the ACA’s requirement that employers include a birth control benefit in their employees’ health plans.  Colorado-based Little Sisters of the Poor is one of the seven related cases before the court in Zubik v. Burwell.
