South Dakota passes religious freedom bill regarding public funds; GA lesbian loses employment case before 11th Circuit


South Dakota, which had been already reported as preparing a bill that would deny trans people the right to birth certificate change, has also passed a bill allowing adoption agencies get public friends to turn away LGBT couples if based on religious conviction.  Instinct Magazine has a story here.  This was Senate Bill 149.

And the 11th Circuit has upheld the firing of a security guard in Jameka Evans v. Georgia Regional hospital, apparently for non-conforming appearance and behavior, opinion here.

Lambda Legal has sent out fund raising literature that poses its mission in terms of "resistance" (an all too trendy term these days of Trump and Sessions).  The plaintiff may appeal to the en banc court.
