Federal Judge Max Cogburn Dismissed The Challenge Against The Opt-Out Law In North Carolina

Written by 



U.S. District Judge Max Cogburn has dismissed the complaint filed by six couples in North Carolina against the law that allows state officials to refuse to perform same-sex marriages for religious objection.

The judge considered that there were not enough evidence that same-sex couples are harmed as taxpayers. The complainants had indeed focused their arguments on taxation.

Remember that this law is both an issue for same-sex couples but also for heterosexual couples because a magistrate who uses the opt-out law then is prevented to perform marriages for six months.

The plaintiffs planned to appeal the decision of Judge Cogburn.
