U.S. seeks delay on birth control case

In the Obama Administration’s first formal response to constitutional challenges to the new birth control mandate, Justice Department lawyers have argued that the federal courts should stay on the sidelines of the dispute at least until a new attempt at compromise is finally worked out, more than a year from now.   In a filing Thursday in U.S. District Court in Washington, the Department challenged as premature a lawsuit by a religiously affiliated college in North Carolina seeking to avoid any legal duty to provide contraceptive care for its employees or students in violation of its religious beliefs.
