COLLIER COUNTY, Fla.- A judge dismissed Ave Maria University's lawsuit against the federal government's rule that school must provide contraception coverage its employees.

The university filed the suit last year, saying that contraception contradicts the school's religious beliefs.

On Friday, a US district judge dismissed the suit saying the government is making an effort to work with the school.
