If at first you don’t succeed, try, try, again. The Supreme Court said Tuesday they will now take another case dealing with President Obama’s signature health law, this time over whether businesses have the right to object to birth control mandates for religious reasons. The suits come from Hobby Lobby Inc., an arts and crafts chain based in Oklahoma that has 13,000 full-time workers, and Pennsylvania-based Conestoga Wood Specialties Corp., which employs 950 people in the cabinet industry. Hobby Lobby won its suit in lower courts, while Conestoga lost. The issue before the court has been the subject of around 40 separate lawsuits from private companies, and has roughly split lower court decisions.
