Ace offers a thorough review of a court's striking down the contraception mandate in Obamacare.
1. This is the first litigation to result in a final injunction against the contraception mandate for religious non-profit organizations that come within the Obama Administration's purported exemption to the mandate.

This case is important, though, because it recognizes that even the act of having to claim the exemption is an unacceptable burden on religion.
This mandate doesn't have a prayer.
