MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The Freedom From Religion Foundation is suing the state to obtain records related to a decision not to enforce Wisconsin’s contraceptive coverage law.

Gov. Scott Walker’s administration announced in July it would no longer enforce the law against employers with religious objections in the wake of a U.S. Supreme Court ruled companies with religious objections such as Hobby Lobby can avoid the contraceptive coverage requirement in the federal health care overhaul law.

According to the lawsuit filed Wednesday in Madison, the foundation filed two open record requests with the state Office of the Commissioner of Insurance for records related to the non-enforcement decision. The lawsuit alleges the office didn’t produce all the records in its possession and asks a judge to force the release.

OCI officials declined comment.
