Supreme Court refuses to hear challenge to Miss. LGBT law
The Hill, 1/8/2018

The Supreme Court on Monday refused to hear two cases challenging a Mississippi law that allows businesses and government employees to deny services to LGBT people based on their religious beliefs.

The court’s refusal to hear the case leaves intact the law, known as H.B. 1523

HB 1523 would preempt local nondiscrimination protections for LGBTQ people.
