Midwest Fastener Corp. v. Sebelius

Description:  Alliance Defending Freedom allied attorneys representing the DeVries family, which owns and operates private fastener supply business Midwest Fastener Corp., have filed a federal lawsuit against the Obama administration over its mandate that forces the family-owned business to violate its religious beliefs by requiring it to offer insurance coverage for abortion-inducing drugs, sterilization, and contraception.

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom allied attorney Bryan Beauman of Sturgill, Turner, Barker & Moloney regarding a federal court’s order in Midwest Fastener Corp. v. Sebelius that stops enforcement of the Obama administration’s abortion pill mandate against the Michigan-based family-run business:

“All Americans, including family business owners, have the constitutionally protected freedom to live and do business according to their faith. The Obama administration has been attempting to deprive Americans of this cherished liberty. Today’s court order allows the DeVries family to continue to live consistently with their faith convictions until the courts decide whether to protect religious freedom for similar families and job creators who are also facing this mandate’s threats.”

Co-counsel in the case along with Beauman are Alliance Defending Freedom allied attorneys Robb Krueger of Kreis, Enderle, Hudgins & Borsos; Jason Miller of Miller, Johnson, Snell & Cummiskey; and John Garza of Garza, Regan & Associates, P.C.

Alliance Defending Freedom is an alliance-building, non-profit legal organization that advocates for the right of people to freely live out their faith.
