Diocese of Cheyenne, Wyoming Catholic College Request Injunction from HHS Mandate

Wyoming Catholic College, the Diocese of Cheyenne, and St. Anthony’s Tri-Parish School are requesting an injunction against the scheduled July implementation of the HHS Mandate, arguing that it violates Church teaching, according to K2Radio in Wyoming.

This motion is in addition to the lawsuit filed by the institutions earlier this year.

Wyoming Catholic College is recommended in The Newman Guide for its strong Catholic identity.

At the time the lawsuit was filed, Dr. Kevin Roberts, the president of Wyoming Catholic College said, “this College will not and cannot accept an unjust law that violates our first freedom, for practicing that freedom is the very reason that Wyoming Catholic College exists.”

Dozens of lawsuits have been filed in court by religious institutions against the mandate, including many by Catholic schools and colleges.

Last week, the U.S. Supreme Court heard a case brought by the for-profit Hobby Lobby chain of stores which argued that providing coverage for abortifacients was against its religious beliefs.

U.S. District Court Judge Scott Skavdahl, who was nominated to the federal bench by President Barack Obama, will hold a hearing for the preliminary injunction motion on May 7.
