U.S. District Judge Max Cogburn has dismissed the complaint filed by six couples in North Carolina against the law that allows state officials to refuse to perform same-sex marriages for religious objection.

The judge considered that there were not enough evidence that same-sex couples are harmed as taxpayers. The complainants had indeed focused their arguments on taxation.

Remember that this law is both an issue for same-sex couples but also for heterosexual couples because a magistrate who uses the opt-out law then is prevented to perform marriages for six months.

The plaintiffs planned to appeal the decision of Judge Cogburn.
