Montana Supreme Court Affirms LGBT-Inclusive Non-Discrimination Ordinance in BozemanBy Adam Polaski • August 4, 2016 • 11:48 am
Following a years-long court battle over an LGBT-inclusive non-discrimination ordinance in Bozeman, Montana, the Montana Supreme Court this week ruled to effectively uphold the ordinance by affirming a lower court’s dismissal of a challenge to the ordinance.
The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports:
In their order issued Tuesday, justices unanimously affirmed District Judge John Brown’s dismissal of a suit filed by five Bozeman residents who argued that Bozeman City Commissioners did not have legal authority to enact the non-discrimination ordinance.
There was not potential injury to the plaintiffs, Brown said in his ruling, and none were in a position where they could be named in any action alleging a violation of the ordinance.
