December 2020 – In November 2019, Chelsey Nelson, a Christian photographer from Louisville, Kentucky, filed suit against the city of Louisville for its anti-discrimination law forcing artists such as Nelson to offer wedding services to same-sex couples, regardless of the artist’s religious beliefs.
On August 14, U.S. District Judge Justin Walker of Kentucky’s Western District issued a preliminary injunction against Louisville’s Fairness Ordinance, thereby blocking the city from enforcing its anti-Christian policy against Nelson while her lawsuit moves forward.
Jonathan Scruggs, lawyer with Alliance Defending Freedom and a member of Nelson’s legal team, commended Walker’s injunction: “Just like every American, photographers and writers like Chelsey should be free to peacefully live and work according to their faith, without fear of unjust punishment by the government.”
(Of note: On September 2, Judge Walker was commissioned to sit on the U. S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.)
