Religiously affiliated hospitals win Supreme Court pension case

In a decision that has religiously affiliated hospitals cheering, the Supreme Court ruled that federal pension rules don't apply to religiously affiliated hospitals.

The 8-0 ruling reverses lower court decisions that sided with hospital workers who argued that the exemption from pension laws should not extend to hospitals affiliated with churches.

June 5's Supreme Court ruling in favor of the hospitals — two with Catholic and one with Lutheran ties — will also affect other religiously affiliated institutions and their employees.
