  2. With regard to Hobby Lobby, the case could have unintended consequences for corporations, i.e., enable interested parties to more easily "pierce the corporate veil."

    1. Agi Tater -- If the case ends in Hobby Lobby's favor, it will ABSOLUTELY have unintended consequences for businesses and employees. I'm shocked that it got this far.

      Thank you for the links -- I'll check them out!
