Carl and Angel Larsen of Telescope Media Group in St. Cloud, Minnesota last Friday were denied a request to appeal a court order to dismiss their lawsuit challenging a state law that allows Minnesota officials to control the stories they tell and forces them to promote same-sex marriages if they produce films that celebrate marriage between one man and one woman.

Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys representing the Larsens and their company argued before a federal district court against dismissal and in favor of an order that would suspend enforcement of the law against the Larsens while their case proceeds. The court denied that request and ruled in favor of the state’s motion to dismiss the lawsuit, which means the Larsens have to continue censoring their own speech about marriage to avoid violating the law.
