The CEO of an electric company in Florida has filed suit against the Department of Health and Human Services over the "preventive services" mandate, making it the 50th such lawsuit filed against HHS, the Christian Post reports. Thomas Beckwith, CEO of Beckwith Electric of Largo, filed the suit Tuesday in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida, Tampa Division. "This is a case about religious freedom," reads the first point under the "Nature of the Action" section of the 48-page suit. "The mandate forces employers and individuals to violate their religious beliefs because it requires employers and individuals to pay for and provide insurance from insurance issuers which fund and directly provide for drugs, devices and services which violate their deeply held religious beliefs." Beckwith is being represented by the Thomas More Law Center, which has already brought several challenges against Obamacare and the HHS mandate.
