SUPCO to decide if they’ll hear NM same-sex case

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – It’s a New Mexico case of religious freedom verses civil rights and the US Supreme Court could consider Friday if they’ll hear it.

In 2006, Elane Photography in Albuquerque refused to take pictures of a same-sex couple’s commitment ceremony.

The owner said it violated her Christian beliefs protected under free speech.

But, the New Mexico supreme court didn’t agree saying her refusal to photograph the ceremony violates the state’s discrimination law.

The photographer appealed to the nation’s highest court.
