Supreme Court Grant of Review in HHS Mandate Cases

by Ed Whelan

A grant of review seemed certain. What was less clear was whether the Supreme Court would grant review only in the Hobby Lobby case from the Tenth Circuit, only in the Conestoga case from the Third Circuit, or in both. (I don’t think that any of grant options would have revealed anything about how the Court views the matter on the merits.) It turns out that it has granted in both.
