Add Tom Monaghan’s lawsuit against the contraceptive mandate to the list of those granted injunctive relief:

A federal judge has ordered a temporary halt on the Obama administration’s birth-control coverage policy for Tom Monaghan, the Catholic billionaire who founded Domino’s Pizza.

Federal District Court Judge Lawrence P. Zatkoff issued the decision Sunday, less than two days before the policy would have taken effect and exposed Monaghan to fines for non-compliance.

“Plaintiff has shown that abiding by the mandate will substantially burden his exercise of religion,” Zatkoff wrote.

“The government has failed to satisfy its burden of showing that its actions were narrowly tailored to serve a compelling interest. … This factor weighs in favor of granting Plaintiffs’ motion.”

The suit was filed by Monaghan in regard to an office park he owns, since he sold his controlling interest in Dominoe’s Pizza in 1998.  The legal battle over all of this is a joy to behold!  Just as the Devil can cite Scripture to suit his purpose, the good guys can win in court on occasion.
