The nine Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court are wrapping up their term on Monday with the release of two decisions. The Hobby Lobby case is one of the most anticipated of the year. At issue in the case is whether the Hobby Lobby corporation must comply with the mandates of Obamacare that require employers to offer contraceptive coverage in the health plans they offer to employees. The company claims its religious beliefs preclude it from including contraceptives in health coverage. Law professor Steven Green with Willamette University says it’s an important case and the first time the court has taken up the Affordable Care Act since upholding it in 2012.
