In a story that has gotten little attention in the media, a federal judge has ruled that the Obama administration cannot require Domino’s Pizza founder Tom Monaghan to provide mandatory contraception coverage to his employees as a result of Obamacare.

U.S. District Judge Lawrence Zatkoff granted a preliminary injunction Thursday against enforcement of the law against Monaghan and Domino’s Farms, according to the CBS affiliate in Detroit.

The new federal law requires employers to offer insurance that includes contraception coverage or risk fines. According to Zatkoff’s order, Domino’s Farms faced $200,000 in yearly payments under the law.

Monaghan is a devout Roman Catholic who says he considers contraception a “gravely immoral” practice, as noted in the CBS report.

Domino’s Farms is not connected to Domino Pizza, with Monaghan having sold his stake in the latter.

In its response to Monaghan’s suit filed in December, the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services denied the health care law had a substantial effect on Monaghan’s exercise of his rights to religious freedom or freedom of speech, Fox News reports.
