Court orders review in Ohio birth control case

Written by 

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Supreme Court on Tuesday ordered further review in a case involving Ohio business owners who challenged the birth control mandate under the new federal health care law.

The order comes after its ruling Monday that businesses can now lodge religious objections to the coverage.

The case involves two brothers, Francis and Philip M. Gilardi, who own Freshway Foods and Freshway Logistics of Sidney, Ohio. They challenged the mandate on religious grounds. Last November, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit ruled in favor of the brothers based on their individual right to object to the coverage for their 400 employees - not on a company's right.

On Tuesday, the Supreme Court sent the case back to the appeals court to rule in accordance with Monday's decision.
