How do I fix a Door that binds

This is a out door to a Laundry Room, which was recently built.  It appears that the door frame is not straight, how would I fix that??

It kind of depends on what part of the door is binding.  If it wasn't hung properly, then removing the door and jamb is one option but that also requires removing the casing around the door which usually means some painting too.  Another option is to shim the hinges.  Usually the hinge that needs to be shimmed it the one "catty corner" from where the door is sticking.

Tom Silva of This Old House repairs a door in a video here that may help you.
