I am quoted in USA Today in Contraception Mandate Case

November 26th, 2013

I chatted with Richard Wolf yesterday yesterday about the pending contraceptive petitions. I was quoted about the importance of the Conestoga petition, which was granted today. Here is my brief bit in USA Today:

While most Supreme Court experts had predicted the justices would grant the Hobby Lobby case, the court may have added Conestoga’s challenge because that company is owned directly by a family, rather than a trust.

“It’s a really significant case,” says Josh Blackman, an assistant law professor at South Texas College of Law and author of a recent book on the constitutional challenges to Obamacare.

These cases will be really, really though. And fascinating.
