Tune in tonight to ON THE RECORD at 10pm. A Federal Judge in DC — Judge Reggie Walton — ruled that a Christian publishing company does not have to offer the health insurance coverage for contraceptives. Reason? The Christian company has a moral objections. Will the Obama Administration appeal the ruling?
(And by the way, I have known this Judge for decades! I tried a terrible shooting case in front of him and much more…probably a murder case….in my previous life as a criminal defense attorney. He gave defendants fair trials but was always a very, very heavy hitter when it came to sentencing. You never wanted to be found guilty in his court. He is a very good friend (best friend?) of Ted Williams and he is a very nice guy — unless, of course, you were a guilty defendant and then you would not be fond of him.)
