Religious Accommodations Act opponents petition U.S. Supreme Court as law takes effect

Governor Bryant said in a statement:

“As I have said from the beginning, this law was democratically enacted and is perfectly constitutional. The people of Mississippi have the right to ensure that all of our citizens are free to peacefully live and work without fear of being punished for their sincerely held religious beliefs.”

A three judge panel within the Fifth Circuit Court of appeals said the plaintiffs lacked standing to bring the challenge and the court denied a rehearing request. That’s why the U.S. Supreme Court is the last resort for trying to stop the law.
