Court finds that Elane Photography violated state's Human Rights Act

Elaine Huguenin told a lesbian couple in New Mexico that she could not photograph their 2006 wedding because it would violate her religious beliefs.

On Thursday, the New Mexico Supreme Court unanimously ruled that Huguenin had violated the state's Human Rights Act.

The court stated that in turning away plaintiff Vanessa Willock and her partner, Elane Photography in Albuquerque had violated the act in the same way as if it had turned away a couple of opposite races.
