Judge blocks birth con­trol cov­er­age rules

New Haven Register (New Haven, CT) - - NATION/WORLD -

A U.S. judge in Cal­i­for­nia has blocked Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion rules, which would al­low more em­ploy­ers to opt out of pro­vid­ing women with no-cost birth con­trol, from tak­ing ef­fect in 13 states — in­clud­ing Con­necti­cut —and Washington, D.C.

Judge Hay­wood Gil­liam on Sun­day granted a re­quest for a pre­lim­i­nary in­junc­tion by Cal­i­for­nia, 12 other states and Washington, D.C. The plain­tiffs sought to pre­vent the rules from tak­ing ef­fect as sched­uled on Mon­day while a law­suit against them moved for­ward.

But Gil­liam re­jected their re­quest that he block the rules na­tion­wide.
