This past Saturday in a Breitbart.com opinion piece, FRC's Ken Klukowski noted that at least two of the three judges on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit appeared ready to block the HHS mandate. On Tuesday, the appellate court reinstated lawsuits brought by Belmont Abbey College and Wheaton College. The Becket Fund for Religious Liberty in a news release praised the court for ordering "the Obama Administration to report back every 60 days—starting in mid-February—until the Administration makes good on its promise to issue a new rule that protects the Colleges’ religious freedom."
