Wayne Bodle was an invited contributor and signatory to an Amicus Curiae brief to the Supreme Court recently filed by the Constitutional Accountability Center in Washington D.C. in the case of "David A Zubic, et. al. v. Sylvia Burwell, Secretary of Health and Human Services, et. al."

The brief supports the federal government's position on the requirement in the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) that employers, including the nonprofit social service affiliates of religious organizations, offer contraceptive services coverage under their health care plans to their employees. The brief is filed on behalf of military historians who address the historical nature and limits of accommodations granted to conscientious objectors to military service from the earliest days of American history.
