A Massachusetts bar exam applicant who claims he failed the test because he didn't answer a question about gay marriage is suing the test administration agency, the state Supreme Judicial Court and four individual justices for constitutional violations. Stephen Dunne says the question required applicants to "affirmatively accept, support and promote homosexual marriage and homosexual parenting," and claims that defendants violated his First Amendment right to exercise his religion.
