The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals reversed a lower federal court’s decision to strike down House Bill 1523, allowing the law to take effect. The ruling was that the original plaintiffs challenging House Bill 1523 lacked standing, because they “have not shown an injury-in-fact caused by HB 1523.”

That’s exactly what these four articles published over a year ago on MississippiPEP.com explained.
