Lawsuit challenges US governor Bobby Jindal's religious objections order 1.7.2015 DNA: Recent Columns
Indian-origin Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal's executive order that aims to give special protections to people who oppose same-sex marriage is unconstitutional and should be thrown out, gay rights advocates argue in a lawsuit. The lawsuit filed yesterday comes days after the US Supreme Court's landmark ruling that effectively struck down bans on same-sex marriage in Louisiana and several other states. Louisiana began issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples Monday. The state had been the last to do so. The American Civil Liberties Union Foundation of Louisiana, the Forum for Equality Foundation and six New Orleans residents lodged their challenge of the governor's May 19 order in state court in Baton Rouge. "Gov Jindal has violated the Louisiana Constitution by setting up special protections for those who share his belief system. In our country no one is above the law, including the Governor. He swore to uphold the laws of Louisiana. This lawsuit seeks to hold him to that oath," Marjorie Esman, ...

Bobby Jindal sued over order to protect same-sex marriage opponents 1.7.2015 deccanherald.com
A gay rights advocacy group and the American Civil Liberties Union of Louisiana are suing Louisianas Indian-American governor Bobby Jindal for issuing an executive order aimed at protecting opponents of same-sex marriage. Jindal signed the religious freedom executive order in May hours after the Louisiana Legislature refused to pass a bill that would have implemented similar protections for those opposing same-sex marriage, according to NOLA.com. The ACLU and other plaintiffs allege that Jindal has overstepped his executive authority by trying to provide a right to same-sex marriage opponents that only the Legislature can give. "The governors job isnt to create law," Sean Sullivan, with Forum for Equality Foundation, the LGBT rights organization involved with the lawsuit, was quoted as saying. "There is a big separation of powers issue here." "The ACLU used to defend civil liberties, now it appears they attack them," said Jindal in a written statement suggesting the lawsuit is politically motivated. "The ...
