Abstract

Rick Garnett quoted in NCR article by David Gibson "Supreme Court takes up contraceptive mandate, will rule on religious rights of corporations" on November 26, 2013. Given the polemics, Notre Dame law professor Richard Garnett said he worries "that what I regard as accidental aspects of the case -- the Citizens United debate, the 'war on women' rhetoric from the last election, the controversies about (health care reform) -- will distract the court from the more specific legal question presented, which has to do, again, with the interpretation of a particular, and an important, federal statute."
