Lawsuit challenges Notre Dame’s birth control rulesJune 27, 2018
By The Associated Press
SOUTH BEND — A lawsuit has been filed in Indiana challenging Notre Dame University’s plan to make health plan members share in birth control costs.
The South Bend Tribune reports the lawsuit was filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court for Northern Indiana. In addition to Notre Dame’s abortion policies, it challenges the Trump administration’s interim rules allowing universities to disregard a requirement of the Affordable Care Act that health plans cover birth control for women without out-of-pocket costs.
The lawsuit claims the cost-sharing plan violates federal law and the Constitution.
The lawsuit on behalf of Notre Dame students, staff and faculty was filed with the help of the National Women’s Law Center, Americans United for Separation of Church and State, and the Center for Reproductive Rights.
In a statement, Notre Dame spokesman Paul Browne said the assertions in the lawsuit “are maliciously and preposterously false.”
