Issue: (1) Whether the petitioners have standing to advance the claim that the mandate by the Department of Health and Human Services requiring them to provide their employees with abortion-inducing drugs, contraceptive drugs or devices, and sterilization violates the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (“RFRA”) by forcing individual business owners to violate their religious beliefs when governing the corporation through which they do business upon pain of ruinous consequences; and (2) whether the mandate imposes a substantial burden on petitioners’ exercise of religion within the meaning of the RFRA by coercing them to violate their religious convictions when conducting business upon pain of ruinous consequences.
Judgment: Vacated and remanded on July 1, 2014.
