Federal Judge Dismisses Lawsuit By St. Cloud Video Company That Doesn't Want To Work With Gay Couple

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A federal judge has dismissed a legal challenge by the owners of a Minnesota video company who want to shoot weddings for heterosexual couples only.

Carl and Angel Larsen own Telescope Media Group and filed a lawsuit in December against the state's human rights commissioner and attorney general contesting a Minnesota law that bans businesses from denying wedding services to same-sex couples.

The St. Cloud couple's lawsuit was a pre-emptive effort to avoid penalties for turning away same-sex customers. The Star Tribune reports Chief District Judge John Tunheim rejected the Larsens' argument that the law was an effort to "stamp out expression opposing same-sex marriage."

The Alliance Defending Freedom, which represents the Larsens, says the couple plans to file an appeal.
