January 30, 2015 (CardinalNewmanSociety.org) — Oral arguments for Eternal Word Television Network’s (EWTN) case against the HHS mandate will be heard on February 4, 2015, at the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta, Ga. EWTN is one of many Catholic organizations, including several Catholic colleges and universities, in the country with such cases working their way through the courts.

“A Catholic network whose sole purpose is to spread the word of God, EWTN must fight for the right to remain faithful to the very religious message it advances,” stated the Becket Fund in its media advisory.

In a “rare step,” EWTN was granted emergency relief by the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals on July 1, 2014, protecting the Catholic network from millions of dollars in IRS fines as the case proceeds.

Lori Windham, senior counsel for the Becket Fund, and Michael Warsaw, chairman and CEO of EWTN will reportedly both be present at the hearing in February.
