Domino’s Pizza owner wins injunction on birth control mandate

Posted by   + Show Post
A federal judge has ordered a temporary halt on the Obama administration’s birth-control coverage policy for Tom Monaghan, the Catholic billionaire who founded Domino’s Pizza.

Federal District Court Judge Lawrence P. Zatkoff issued the decision Sunday, less than two days before the policy would have taken effect and exposed Monaghan to fines for non-compliance.

‚ÄúPlaintiff has shown that abiding by the mandate will substantially burden his exercise of religion,‚ÄĚ Zatkoff wrote.

‚ÄúThe government has failed to satisfy its burden of showing that its actions were narrowly tailored to serve a compelling interest. ‚Ķ This factor weighs in favor of granting Plaintiffs‚Äô motion.‚ÄĚ

He's exercising Freedom of Religeon. Nothing wrong with that.
