In a landmark decision on June 26, 2015, the Supreme Court held that same-sex marriage is a fundamental right under the Due Process and Equal Protection Clauses of the Fourteenth Amendment and that states cannot refuse to grant marital licenses to same-sex couples. But what happens now? As is evident from the coverage over Kentucky County Clerk Kim Davis’s refusal to grant marriage licenses, and the interest of 2016 Presidential candidates in the decision, the battle over religious freedom has just begun. The Indian American Bar Association will present panelists who will explore this topic. Please RSVP if you plan to attend.
