A mortgage banking firm that denied health insurance coverage to the same-sex spouse of a former female employee because of its religious values is facing a lawsuit.

Judith Dominguez was a California employee of Greenwood Village, Colorado-based Cherry Creek Mortgage Co. who legally married Patricia Martinez in 2013.

While the couple was enrolled in Cherry Creek’s health insurance plan in 2016, they were denied re-enrollment at the end of the year because they lacked a legal union between a man and a woman.
