The University of Notre Dame is re-filing a lawsuit against the Obama administration over a federal mandate that health insurance plans include birth control. ABC News reports Notre Dame filed a lawsuit in May of 2012, but the suit was considered premature, because the law had not gone into effect. Now the suit is being re-filed by the university, just before the law takes effect January 1st, and a week after the US Supreme Court agreed to consider two cases where businesses objected to covering birth control for religious reasons. Notre Dame says the federal mandate that all employees be covered for birth control violates the Catholic school's rights under the First Amendment and the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.
