COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - An associate professor at the University of Missouri School of Law is involved in a case that goes before the U.S. Supreme Court this week.

Josh Hawley is on a team of about 15 lawyers working on Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Inc., which addresses whether businesses can use religious objections to avoid a requirement to provide insurance coverage for birth control for employees.

The Columbia Daily Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1lexV4p ) the case goes before the court Tuesday. Hobby Lobby objects to covering certain contraceptives in its health plans required by the federal health law.

Paul Clement, former U.S. solicitor general, will argue the case for Oklahoma City-based Hobby Lobby. Hawley has worked on briefs and oral arguments in the case for the Hobby Lobby legal team.
