Louisville wedding photographer files 50 page lawsuit against Fairness Campaign

A Louisville wedding photographer is challenging the city’s fairness ordinance on religious grounds.

Chelsey Nelson said she believes marriage is between and a man and a woman and that she shouldn’t be forced to photograph same sex couples.

WDRB News reported that the more than 50-page suit claims the law would “…force Chelsey to create photographs for, blog about, and participate in solemn ceremonies she disagrees with–same-sex wedding ceremonies.”

Jonathan Scruggs of the Alliance Defending Freedom told WDRB News that the way Louisville’s law works, because Chelsey wants to photograph and blog about weddings between a man and a woman, it requires her to do the same type of thing to celebrate same-sex wedding ceremonies, and that’s just wrong.

Scruggs added that this is a preemptive strike because no one has taken action against her.

Chris Hartman of the Fairness Campaign told WDRB News that the suit is not a serious challenge to the law.
