Hawaii AG joins refusal of healthcare lawsuit

Clare E. Connors

Hawaii Attorney General Clare E. Connors joined a coalition of 22 attorneys general in challenging the Trump Administration’s attempts to make it easier for health care providers to refuse to provide necessary and desired health coverage to individuals on the basis of their health care providers’ “religious beliefs or moral convictions.” In an amicus brief filed in support of lawsuits brought by the states of California and Washington against the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the coalition opposes the Trump Administration’s ‘Refusal-of-Care’ rule.
