Supreme Court Allows Some Employers To Drop Contraception Coverage From Healthcare Plans – 30 june 2014

RT logoThe Supreme Court ruled on Monday that the government cannot require “closely held” corporations to provide contraception coverage to its employees under the Affordable Care Act.

In a divided 5-4 ruling that carves out a piece of President Obama’s healthcare law, the court reasoned that under the 1993 Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA), for-profit companies that are primarily controlled by a single family or a few individuals do not have to provide birth control coverage.

According to the Internal Revenue Service, a closely held corporation is one “that has more than 50% of the value of its outstanding stock owned (directly or indirectly) by 5 or fewer individuals at any time during the last half of the tax year; and is not a personal service corporation.”

Supreme Court Declines To Vindicate Google Over Street View Violations – 30 June 2014

RT logoThe Supreme Court of the United States said Monday that it won’t consider a request from Google to weigh in on a matter concerning the Silicon Valley giant’s Street View map feature.

Refusal on the part of SCOTUS to grant Google’s request for an appeal from the high court now leaves intact an earlier decision handed down by a federal appellate panel in California.

The case itself surrounds the Google Street View platform, which for years has photographed huge swaths of the US and abroad by sending camera-equipped cars down roads around the world. Google was hit hard with litigation concerning that program in 2010 though after acknowledging that had accidentally collected payloads from unsecure internet networks, including data consisting of usernames, passwords and email contents.
