JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) — The plaintiffs who filed a lawsuit against Gov. Phil Bryant regarding House Bill 1523 are seeking a rehearing.
The Campaign for Southern Equality said the petition was filed Thursday.
Last month, a judge panel decided that the plaintiffs did not have the standing to challenge the bill, which is commonly referred to as the Religious Objections Law.
The law allows merchants and government employees to cite religious beliefs to deny services to same-sex couples.The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals reversed a judge’s decision that had blocked the law before it could take effect last July.
