U.S. District Judge Lawrence Zatkoff on Thursday granted a preliminary injunction against enforcement of the contraception provision of the law against Tom Monaghan and Domino's Farms Corp. near Ann Arbor, Mich.
Monaghan is a Roman Catholic who says he considers contraception a "gravely immoral" practice. He offers health insurance that excludes contraception and abortion for employees.
The new federal law requires employers to offer insurance including contraception coverage or risk fines.
Monaghan sold most of his controlling stake in Domino's Pizza in 1998 to private equity company Bain Capital.
