Happy Tuesday.

The Hobby Lobby decision is already having an impact on the contraception mandate accommodation line of cases. These are cases arising all over the country in which non-profits argue the accommodation scheme the administration created enlists them in the provision of the very contraception coverage they object to. In one of those cases, raised by the Catholic cable channel EWTN, a district judge had denied a preliminary injunction against the accommodation scheme. Yesterday, within hours of the Hobby Lobby decision, the 11th Circuit stepped in and granted the preliminary injunction, relying in part on the reasoning of Hobby Lobby to conclude that EWTN has a substantial likelihood of success on the merits. That decision, which is a useful read, is here (PDF).

Also, after the victory for "partial public employees" in Harris yesterday, folks were wondering when public employees would get a chance at undoing the ridiculous fiction that their compelled dues aren't used to expand union ideological activity. Just such a case is already pending before the 9th Circuit. The case is Friedrichs v. California School Teachers Ass'n.
