In an August 5 report broadcast by National Public Radio “All Things Considered,” Ropes & Gray government enforcement partner Aaron Katz (Boston) discusses the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby, in which the Court affirmed a 10th Circuit Court of Appeals opinion, which held that as applied to closely held corporations, provisions of the Affordable Care Act requiring employers to provide female employees with no-cost access to contraception violate the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. The National Public Radio report explains that the Court’s ruling has implications for the protections afforded to a company’s creditors under a legal concept called the “corporate veil.”
