SUPREME COURT-HEALTH OVERHAUL
Supreme Court offers nuns a chance to continue holding off on providing contraceptive coverage

The Supreme Court is offering a short-term compromise to continue to exempt a group of Denver nuns that operates charity nursing homes from the birth control mandate of the nation's health care law.
The order crafted by the high court on Friday would keep in force Justice Sonia Sotomayor's order to hold off the contraceptive coverage requirement of the Affordable Care Act.
The stay issued by Sotomayor would last until a federal appeals court rules on the nuns' appeal.
