Judge issues injunction to protect company against U.S. federal government

A federal judge in Colorado has granted an injunction that allows Hercules Industries to refuse to provide health insurance coverage for employees for contraception, embryocides and sterilization.  The owner of the company is a Catholic who objects to facilitating the services for religious reasons.  Lawyers for the company suggested that the government itself could offer such a plan.  The injunction will protect the company pending the outcome of a trial and appeals.
