USA, New Mexico: Supreme Court Won’t Hear Photographer’s Case

Monday, April 7th, 2014

US Supreme CourtThe US Supreme Court has just turned away the case of a New Mexico Photographer who was sued after she refused to photograph a same-sex wedding.

Equality on Trial reports:

The Court had considered the petition over several conferences, and this morning, they officially denied certiorari, meaning that the unanimous New Mexico Supreme Court decision against the business will remain in effect in the state. The challenge was brought by the photography business, Elane Photography, after they declined to photograph a same-sex commitment ceremony (before same-sex marriage was legal in the state) and were cited under the state’s public accommodations law, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity, among other things.

Will this and the Mozilla flap rekindle the fire under those Right to Discriminate bills that were recently shot down in many states across the country?
