OSU Cascades professor Jim Foster is an expert on constitutional law and says this decision is consistent with other recent high court rulings.

 

"It signals in general the trajectory of the Robert's court -- that's its on a conservative bent.  It's going to see the rights of closely held corporations are synonymous with individuals when it comes to religious freedom, which continues the trend the court started in Citizens United."

 

In Citizens United, the high court ruled that corporations are people and therefore should not be limited in how much money they want to donate to political campaigns.

 

"It continues this trend that money equals speech.  If you own a corporation you, not your employees will decide whether to have brith control devices."

 

Hobby Lobby argued that its religious beliefs forced them to either violate their faith or pay big fines to meet the Affordable Care Act requirement to supply birth control.
