Same-Sex Couples Challenge Magistrate Recusal Law
A new lawsuit challenges the law that allows magistrates to opt out of presiding over same-sex marriages if they oppose it for religious reasons.
Plaintiffs claim the measure is discriminatory and elevates a specific religious belief. But proponents of the law say it balances freedom of religion with the rights of same-sex couples.
Host Frank Stasio talks with WUNC capitol reporter Jorge Valencia about the lawsuit.
