Lawsuit Filed to Block Calif. Teen Gay Cure Ban

A Christian legal group has filed a lawsuit against a California law that prohibits so-called conversion therapy.

The Pacific Justice Institute, a non-profit legal defense organization specializing in the defense of religious freedom, parental rights, and other civil liberties, filed a lawsuit in a federal court in Sacramento on Monday.

The group argues the law, which bans the practice of converting gays to straights, violates First Amendment and privacy rights.
