The Supreme Court announced Friday that oral arguments in the case of the Little Sisters of the Poor have been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Oral arguments in Little Sisters of the Poor v. Commonwealth of Pennsylvania were originally scheduled for April 29, but the court announced on Friday that they would be postponed "in keeping with public health guidance in response to COVID-19," together with other cases due to have been heard that week and the previous week.
The case of the Little Sisters involves their religious exemption from the HHS contraceptive mandate.
The states of Pennsylvania and California have sued the Trump administration to strip the religious community of their exemption to the mandate. In 2018, the Supreme Court allowed the sisters to intervene in the states' lawsuits.
