PIERRE – Attorney General Marty Jackley announces that South Dakota has joined with 17 states as Amicus Curiae or “friend of the Court” in a brief filed in the United States Supreme Court in support of First Amendment Rights. The amicus brief challenges the Third Circuit Court of Appeals decision that the employer mandate in the Affordable Care Act did not violate religious principles in the operation of family-owned businesses. There is no additional financial cost to the State to serve as Amicus.

“From day one South Dakota challenged the federal takeover of healthcare as infringing upon our individual and state rights. Although a divided Supreme Court held the Individual Mandate portion of ObamaCare to be a Constitutional Tax, the Court did not authorize Health and Human Services to implement the Federal Healthcare Mandate in a manner that infringes upon Freedom of Religion,” said Jackley.
