The remaining eight justices will consider seven related cases on whether nonprofit groups that oppose the requirement on religious grounds can object under a U.S. law called the Religious Freedom Restoration Act to a compromise version of the requirement offered by the Obama administration. The court, divided 4-4 between liberal and conservative justices without the conservative Scalia, is set to hear the case on Wednesday.
