ACLU Files Suit Against Governor Jindal Over Unconstitutional Marriage Executive Order

BATON ROUGE, La. - The ACLU Foundation of Louisiana, Forum for Equality Foundation, and 6 individual plaintiffs today filed suit challenging Governor Bobby Jindal's "Marriage and Conscience Order," signed on May 19, because it goes beyond his constitutional authority as governor. The lawsuit asserts that the “Marriage and Conscience Order” creates a class of persons who are protected over others due to their belief that same-sex couples should be denied marriage equality.
