    Associated Press: “‘Only unjust laws separate what people say from what they believe,’ said the group’s senior counsel, Jordan Lorence. ‘The First Amendment protects our freedom to speak or not speak on any issue without fear of punishment. We had hoped the U.S. Supreme Court would use this case to affirm this basic constitutional principle; however, the court will likely have several more opportunities’ to do that in other cases now in the court system.”

    Lawyer Herald: “On the other hand, the LA Times said that the appeal in the photographer’s case focused on the First Amendment and the freedom of speech only. According to the Lawyers for the Alliance Defending Freedom, the New Mexico anti-discrimination law will force Elane Photography to create expression in violation of her religious beliefs. Critis have said that the anti-discrimination law itself was a form of compelled speech.”
