ADF comment on appeal to NM Supreme Court in Elane Photography v. Willock
The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defense Fund Senior Counsel Jordan Lorence regarding Wednesday’s appeal filed with the New Mexico Supreme Court in Elane Photography v. Willock:
“Americans in the marketplace should not be subjected to legal attacks for simply abiding by their beliefs. We trust the New Mexico Supreme Court will review this case because the government should not be allowed to force this photographer to promote a message that violates her conscience. The Constitution clearly prohibits the state from forcing unwilling artists to advance a perspective with which they disagree.”
