CLS Files Brief in Tenth Circuit
March 1, 2013 - CLS filed an amicus brief in support of Christian business owners' rights to follow their religious convictions when providing insurance coverage for employees. The brief was filed in the Tenth Circuit in Newland v. Sebelius.
The brief explains why the HHS Mandate's definition of "religious employers" sharply departs from the American bipartisan tradition of respecting religious conscience rights. Joining the CLS brief are: Association of Gospel Rescue Missions; Prison Fellowship Ministries; Association of Christian Schools International; National Association of Evangelicals; Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention; the C12 Group; and the Institutional Religious Freedom Alliance.
