SCOTUS declines to take up case challenging Trump's weakening of contraceptive mandate

The Supreme Court declined on Monday to take up a case brought by the Little Sisters of the Poor, a Roman Catholic religious order for women, challenging lower court opinions that blocked the Trump administration's effort to weaken the Affordable Care Act's contraceptive coverage mandate.

Several cases are still percolating in the lower courts below and it is likely the issue will find its way back to the Supreme Court.
