Last Updated


Wedding photographer Bob Updegrove challenged a state law, enacted July 1, 2020, that forces him to use his artistic talents to photograph same-sex weddings if he photographs weddings between one man and one woman. The law violates foundational rights set forth in the U.S. Constitution, including the First Amendment’s Free Speech and Free Exercise clauses.
