In declining to hear the case, Liberty University v. Lew, 13-306, the court upheld a decision by the federal appeals court to dismiss the lawsuit.
Liberty, a Christian University, hoped to avoid the Affordable Care Act's requirements that most employers must provide health insurance to all its employees or face a fine, as well as complaining the requirement for all insurance plans to include contraceptive coverage was a violation of its religious freedoms.
Although the Supreme Court refused to hear the challenge brought by Liberty, a non-profit organization, it said last week it would hear suits from two for-profit companies, Hobby Lobby craft-store and Conestoga Wood Specialties.
