On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court dealt a defeat to the Obama administration, ruling that closely held companies cannot be forced to cover some types of contraceptives for their employees. Owners of Hobby Lobby, a chain of craft stores, had argued that the Obamacare contraception coverage mandate required them to pay for some methods they oppose on religious grounds. We'll discuss the implications of the decision, as well as other major rulings from the court's latest term.
