(Oklahoma City, OK)  --  A federal judge is granting a temporary injunction shielding Oklahoma City-based Hobby Lobby from a provision in the new federal health care law.  The company’s owners argued that a requirement to provide contraceptive services to their employees violates their religious freedom.  Judge Joe Heaton agreed and gave the federal government until October 1st to prepare an appeal.
