Jindal wants Religious Freedom lawsuit dismissed

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Governor Bobby Jindal is asking a judge to dismiss a lawsuit challenging his Religious Freedom executive order. 

Jindal signed the executive order in May to protect people and business who oppose same-sex marriage. 

The governor believes that the case should be dismissed because the plaintiffs in the case can't prove they have been harmed by the order.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Louisiana believes that the order allows discrimination against people who support same sex marriage.
