Notre Dame Sues Obama Administration Over Birth Control Coverage

Notre Dame—along with dozens of other Catholic schools and institutions—has filed a lawsuit against the Obama administration over a mandate requiring most employers to provide birth control coverage in health plans for their employees. The Archdioceses of Washington, New York and Michigan, and the Catholic University of America are also involved in the lawsuit. President Obama delivered a commencement address at Notre Dame in 2009.
