Feds can't force Domino's founder to offer contraceptives, judge says

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.

Then Hobby Lobby shouldn’t be forced to either.

There is now a legal precedence for Hobby Lobby (as well as other organizations) to strike down this provision of Obamacare.

However, the article points out that there were only 44 employees in this organization.

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.

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.

You're right. The fact the 45 was on one line and the 44 part time was on another line made me miss that.

Just getting old -- I skim read quit a bit now -- not for detail but for meaning. And even that I do wrong at times...

So that means the Obamacare rule (contraception) may not be enforced until it is ruled upon -- one way or another.

Is that correct?

"mandatory contraception coverage"

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......

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?

Getting old here too -- LOL, so I can relate.

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.
