Why only Georgia and not the other 49 (or 56) states?

With Hobby Lobby going to US SCOTUS, I felt this should be on Front Page of Free Republic.

That is my question as well, except I think the answer is that Federal Judge only has jurisdiction over Georgia.

However, most aspects of law are the "Legal Precedents" of something.

The fact this Federal Judge has ruled this way may put a nail in the coffin of the HHS Contraception Mandate (at least in terms of the Roman Catholic Church)

It would be 55 states if California is broken into 6 states:

Math problem: 50 - 1 (California) + 6 (California segmented into a number of states).

It is important, as it would be possible to have flag with 5 rows of 11 stars each (prettier).

Before having 50 states, we had rows of 8 and 6, I think.

The number affects the design of the next American flag

It has something to do with the jurisdiction of the court, and how they apply precedent.

Patience; it has become the legal precedent for other jurisdictions. I’m more curious to see what happens to smaller businesses owned by conscientious Catholics.
