Mississippi’s Draconian Anti-LGBT Law, the Worst in the Nation, Is Set to Take Effect

Draconian anti LBGT laws to go into effect in MississippiFor several years, liberals have been accused of using scare tactics against the “religious liberty” bills that have been proposed across the country, particularly in the wake of same-sex marriage.

This week, the nightmare scenario comes to life as Mississippi may at last implement the most expansive attack on LGBT equality in a generation—if the Supreme Court does not step in first.

That’s because the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals rejected the demand (PDF) to rehear the challenge to Mississippi’s HB 1523 as a full court (“en banc” in legal parlance), thus leaving in place a three-judge panel’s decision from last June, which held that plaintiffs lacked standing to challenge the law.

While that is technically a ruling on procedure, not the merits of the bill, it also means that the case is dismissed.

For now, anyway. It seems certain that the decision will be appealed to the Supreme Court, particularly as the panel adopted a very strict interpretation of standing, the requirement that parties to a lawsuit actually be affected by what they’re suing about.
