BREAKING NEWS: 5th Circuit

Today, the Fifth Circuit issued its ruling overturning the district court. We call upon Governor Jindal and all state officials to live up to their words that they will comply with the Fifth Circuit: the ruling is effective immediately.
To quote the court, the Supreme Court’s decision “is the law of the land and, consequently, the law of this circuit and should not be taken lightly by actors within the jurisdiction of this court.”

We expect Vital Records to immediately begin issuing marriage licenses in Orleans Parish, and we expect the reported problems in Offices of Motor Vehicles to immediately cease. Any state officials who refuse to comply will be investigated, and Forum for Equality Louisiana will take any and all steps to protect the rights of all citizens in this state, and to enforce the Supreme Court and Fifth Circuit’s unambiguous decisions.
