3. 1st Chibok girl to escape Boko Haram to be feted in Nigeria—Associated Press, Michelle Faul

Top line: “The first Chibok teenager to escape from Boko Haram’s Sambisa Forest stronghold has been flown to Nigeria’s capital, Abuja, where she is expected to be feted by the president, even as her freedom adds pressure on the government to do more to rescue 218 other missing girls. Joy and renewed hope have met the discovery of the 19-year-old, who was 17 when she was abducted, though she appears too traumatized to understand her central role in the tragedy that captured worldwide attention and shone a spotlight on the violent methods of Nigeria’s home-grown Islamic extremists.”

6. Supreme Court sends Obamacare contraception case back to lower courts—The Washington Post, Robert Barnes

Top line: “A short-handed Supreme Court on Monday sent back to the lower courts several challenges to the Affordable Care Act’s contraceptive-coverage requirement, saying there was a possible compromise between religious objectors and the Obama administration…The contraceptive case was supposed to have been one of the big ones this term. It asked how to make good on Obamacare’s promise that women will receive the health-care coverage they are entitled to when they work for religiously affiliated organizations that believe providing the coverage implicates them in sin. The next steps are unclear, although the opinion revives challenges to the law filed all across the country and seems to envision some sort of negotiation between the objecting organizations and the administration.”
