Regent Law Student Published in Los Angeles Daily Journal

Third year law student Stephen DeBoer was recently published in the August 7 issue of the Los Angeles Daily Journal.

In his article A Discrimination Paradox, DeBoer compares a recent Employment Tribunal decision from the UK with California county clerks who refuse to conduct same-sex marriage duties based on their religious beliefs. He makes a case allowing for California clerks to be exempt from performing same-sex marriage duties on religious grounds.

His article concludes, “If California is going to allow same-sex couples to marry, its law prohibiting religious discrimination must be respected – both legally in the system of justice and practically at the local country clerk’s office.”
