US judge blocks Mississippi law allowing denial of services to LGBT people

A federal judge blocked on Thursday a Mississippi law permitting those with certain religious objections to deny wedding services to same-sex couples and impose dress and bathroom restrictions on transgender people.

Reeves issued an injunction blocking the law that was to take effect on Friday.
