Hobby Lobby Gets More Time to Fight Obamacare

Hobby Lobby executives say they’ve found a temporary reprieve from the fines the company faces for defying the government’s mandate to provide insurance coverage for abortion-inducing drugs.

Despite a decision by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, who ruled the popular arts and crafts retail chain must comply with the requirement or face financial penalties starting January 1st, Hobby Lobby will have a few more months to fight for its rights, fine-free.

According to a statement released by The Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, the legal group representing Hobby Lobby in its fight for religious freedom, the retail store discovered a way to shift the plan year for its employee health insurance, delaying the mandate’s effective date for several months.
