LOLP files motion for preliminary injunction for Triune Health Group

 

As practicing Catholics, Christopher and Mary Ann Yep are opposed to providing insurance coverage for contraceptives and abortifacients to their employees at Triune Health Group, the Yeps’ Illinois-based business that helps people on disability re-enter the workforce.
 
In August, Law of Life Project and the Thomas More Society filed a complaint in federal court for a declaratory judgment and injunction to prevent Triune Health Group from being forced to provide insurance coverage for abortifacients, sterilization and contraception.

This week, LOLP attorneys filed two additional motions on the Yeps’ behalf: 
 
  • A motion for a preliminary injunction in the Yeps’ federal case and a motion opposing the federal government’s motion to dismiss the case. LOLP argues that forcing the Yeps to participate in the HHS Mandate is an immediate threat to their constitutional rights as well as their rights under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.
 
  • A filing in Illinois state court, which challenges the state healthcare mandate.
