(Washington, DC) - The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), a pro-life legal organization that focuses on constitutional law, said today’s decision by the U.S. Supreme Court to take two cases involving a challenge to the ObamaCare HHS Mandate represents a significant opportunity for the high court to protect the religious freedom of companies and their owners.

“We’re extremely pleased that the Supreme Court will hear these critically important cases,” said Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel of the ACLJ, which has filed numerous challenges against the HHS mandate, with one pending at the high court. “For the government to mandate that a company or its owner acquire a health insurance product that violates their religious beliefs is not only offensive but unconstitutional as well. Such a mandate is an unconstitutional power grab by the federal government and we’re hopeful that the high court will move to protect the religious freedom of Americans.”>

The cases accepted by the high court today are Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood v. Sebelius.

Earlier this month, the ACLJ filed a Petition for Writ of Certiorari with the U.S. Supreme Court, posted here, in the case of Gilardi v. U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

The ACLJ has filed 7 cases in federal court including the Gilardi case. In addition to the direct challenges, the ACLJ has filed more than a dozen amicus briefs backing other legal challenges to the HHS mandate.

The ACLJ will also be filing amicus briefs in the two cases that will be heard by the U.S. Supreme Court.

Led by ACLJ Chief Counsel Jay Sekulow, the ACLJ is based in Washington, D.C.
