Appeals panel denies Notre Dame new suit hearing

– An appeals court has denied the University of Notre Dame’s request for a new hearing in its lawsuit challenging part of the federal health care law that forces it to cover contraceptives in its health insurance for students and employees.

The South Bend Tribune reports a three-judge panel of the U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against the new hearing Wednesday. The same panel in February upheld a federal judge’s ruling that denied the Roman Catholic school’s request for a preliminary injunction against the birth control provision.

Notre Dame contends the birth control provision violates its religious freedom despite an accommodation that allows the school to shift payment of the contraceptives elsewhere. Catholic teaching bars most forms of contraception.
