JACKSON, MS (WLBT) -

A federal judge opposed the motion to block the Religious Accommodations Act from going into effect on July 1. 

U.S. District Judge Carlton Reeves denied the preliminary injunction in the lawsuit filed in early May by the ACLU of Mississippi on behalf of a same-sex couple from Meridian. 

Alford and Thomas are a same-sex couple that are engaged and plan to marry within the next three years.
