INDIANAPOLIS, IN - An Indiana court has rejected an appeal from conservative religious groups that have unsuccessfully challenged limits on the state's religious objections law.
Former Indiana Governor, and now Vice President Mike Pence signed the bill in 2015 during his service as Governor. The move came at a time when there was a national uproar that it could be used to discriminate against gays and lesbians.
A state appeals court ruling upheld a county judge's decision last year that the three groups failed to prove they had faced any harm. According to the Associated Press, an attorney for the religious groups said they have limited their activities to avoid legal action and would consider an appeal to the state Supreme Court.
