HealthCare.gov may not be the only challenge facing the Affordable Care Act. The ACA has now lost a key battle in court. The federal appeals court in Washington has ruled that a Catholic-owned company has the right to pursue a lawsuit against the health care law.

Frank and Phil Gilardi, two brothers who own produce distribution companies in Ohio, filed a legal challenge against the birth control mandate within the law. The company has long excluded birth control coverage for its employees based on religious grounds.

The new health care law requires business with more than 50 employees to offer health coverage, including FDA-approved birth control, at no extra cost.
