A West Virginia auto dealer has revised a lawsuit challenging the federal health care overhaul's requirement that his employees' coverage include abortion-inducing drugs.
Joe Holland and his South Charleston Chevrolet dealership sued federal officials in June. Holland argues that the coverage mandate violates his religious beliefs.
A hearing on Holland's request for a preliminary injunction was canceled after he learned that the health care plan he offers employees already covers the drugs.
The Charleston Gazette reported that Holland filed an amendment lawsuit last week that dropped the preliminary injunction language.
