DETROIT A judge on Thursday blocked the federal government from requiring the founder of Domino's Pizza to provide mandatory contraception coverage to his employees under the health care law.
U.S. District Judge Lawrence Zatkoff granted a preliminary injunction against enforcement of the contraception provision of the law against Tom Monaghan and Domino's Farms Corp., a management company located near Ann Arbor, Mich.
The company, which is not connected to Domino's Pizza, has 45 full-time and 44 part-time employees, according to its court filing. Monaghan sold his controlling stake in Domino's Pizza in 1998 to private equity company Bain Capital and sold his remaining Domino's stock in 2004, according to Domino's Pizza spokesman Chris Brandon.

OBAMACARE TUSSLE: Domino's Founder Wins Contraception Ruling
Let's do the Obamacare Tussle... [insert your favorite tune here...]
Then Hobby Lobby shouldn’t be forced to either.
However, the article points out that there were only 44 employees in this organization.
Good for them!
Their pizza still sucks though.
In all seriousness, no, ‘tis but a scratch. It’s hard to keep track of all the Administration’s attacks on the American people and the Constitution — this does nothing to weaken Obamacare itself.

Obama is a rollin’ stone
Where ever he lays his hat
Is his home
And when he goes
All he’ll leave us is a loan
Technically not Domino’s Pizza. Domino’s Farms owned by the Pizza founder who sold off his shares.
Remember Mika blowing a gasket over the judge’s injunction against the soda ban?
It wasn’t about the soda, but about the thwarting of arbitrary power, that she was so angry about.
Now, if 0bamacare cannot force a company to fund contraceptives, can it force a company to fund anything at all?
Not sure where you see that --- I read 45 FULL time and 44 PART time employees. Definitely falls under the heavy hand of zerocare.
This is only an injunction...
Just getting old -- I skim read quit a bit now -- not for detail but for meaning. And even that I do wrong at times...
Is that correct?
Hey, the thin crust is not too bad. Relatively low in cabs too.
Every time I read that line, I still can't believe it. Who in this world would have *SO* much sex that they would require financial assistance? Oh wait that's right......
Contraception and Abortion ARE NOT “HEALTHCARE”!!!
Makes me angry as well. As was pointed out by a few people, the availability of contraception ISN’T a problem! If we’re talking pregnancy prevention, then women need to get the man to wear condoms, which are dirt cheap (Amazon has ‘em by the 1000 pack size). Or women can get the pill for $9-$15/month at the local superstore or for free from PP. If the issue is medical, like ovarian cysts, most employers or institutions cover it; ie., Georgetown U, WILL cover BC pills for a medical reason, but not for contraception purposes. Ms. Fluke was flat out lying.
If Hobby Lobby is forced to support murdering unborn children, so that the courts are split on whether Obama can violate the First Amendment, it’s a perfect case for the Supreme Court. The sooner this goes to the Supremes and we see whether the rule of law still applies in what used to be a free country, the better. I’m ready either way.
Seems to me that if SCOTUS defines a corporation as “people” entitled to First Amendment rights in regards to campaign contributions, then how can the courts see this issue any differently?
Just wanted to make sure that the # of employees was clear (and hoping that even if it was 44 pt, that they still would have pursued)
I hope zerocare dies quickly, but if it has to be from a thousand cuts like this ruling, I will take it.
Remember when Clinton’s crazy surgeon general Joycelyn Elders wanted to teach masturbation in school? After 20 years I’m starting to think that was a good idea good idea! Who needs free contraception why you’re just wanking your winky?
Why not just free contraceptives to all idiots everywhere?
Anyone who hates kids that much should get some hormone problems out of the deal.
You mean when I order a Domino’s pizza it comes with condoms!!? In the box or as a side?
