Tom Monaghan, founder of Ann Arbor-based Domino’s Pizza, was granted a temporary restraining order by a federal judge against the Affordable Care Act’s requirement to provide coverage for contraception, MLive.com reports.
Monaghan sued the federal government over the act’s mandate that would force employers to provide insurance coverage for contraception and sterilization. He cited religious reasons, the report said.
The mandate takes effect on Jan. 1, 2013.
Another Michigan businessman has not been successful in a similar lawsuit.
John Kennedy, president and CEO of Autocam and Autocam Medical in Grand Rapids, was not granted an injunction, according to National Review Online, a conservative news and commentary site.
