A group of lawyers from Lambda Legal, National Center for Lesbian Rights, and Morrison & Foerster have filed a challenge against the recent Tennessee law that overturned Nashville’s non-discrimination ordinance. They will argue that based on the 1996 case Romer v. Evans, a “desire to harm a politically unpopular group cannot constitute a legitimate governmental interest.”
