Court denies rehearing of Mississippi’s LGBT religous objections law

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit denied the request for a rehearing with the full panel of the Fifth Circuit to plaintiffs in Campaign for Southern Equality v. Bryant III Friday, September 29. That request challenged the passage of House Bill 1523 in Mississippi.

HB 1523 allows merchants and government employees to cite religious beliefs to deny services to same-sex couples.
