Cert. Filed In Wyoming's Disciplining of Judge For Refusing To Perform Same-Sex Marriages

A petition for certiorari (full text) was filed with the U.S. Supreme Court today in Neely v. Wyoming Commission on Judicial Conduct and Ethics, (cert. filed 8/4/2017).  In the case, the Wyoming Supreme Court held that a judge who, because of religious objections, refuses to perform same-sex marriages violates the Wyoming Code of Judicial Conduct. (See prior posting). ADF issued a press release announcing the filing of the petition for review.
