United States Ninth Circuit
State of California v. Azar, 18-15144
Modified a nationwide injunction relating to contraceptive coverage under the Affordable Care Act. When several states sued to block federal regulations on group plan contraceptive coverage that exempt employers with religious or moral objections, the district court issued a nationwide preliminary injunction. On appeal, the Ninth Circuit affirmed the injunction but held that the record did not support its nationwide scope. The panel vacated the portion of the injunction barring enforcement of the regulations in states other than the plaintiff states.
