Notre Dame's legal battle over a controversial portion of the Affordable Care Act is off to a shaky start.

Notre Dame is fighting a mandate to offer free contraceptives to employees and students. The university sees that as a violation of its religious freedom.

A federal judge in Hammond ruled that Notre Dame's case had a low likelihood of success and denied the school's request for an injunction.

Notre Dame will likely take its case to the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago.
