Anti-discrimination and Individual Liberties: Elane Photography v. Willock - PodcastOn August 22, the New Mexico Supreme Court ruled in Elane Photography v. Willock that the First Amendment doesn't protect a photographer's right to decline to take pictures of a same-sex wedding ceremony against the requirements of the state's Human Rights Act, which forbids discriminating against people on the basis of sexual orientation. The case perfectly illustrates the tension between the ideals of non-discrimination and individual freedom. Join us as our expert discusses both sides of the issue.
