Utah MapYet another lawsuit against a state gay marriage ban has sprung up, this time in Utah. Equality on Trial reports:

Restore Our Humanity, a newly-formed LGBT rights organization, announced yesterday in Salt Lake City that it will file a federal lawsuit challenging Utah’s Constitutional Amendment 3, the state’s voter-approved marriage equality ban that passed during the 2004 election, Fox 13 Salt Lake City reported. During the press conference, Matt Spencer, the communication director for Restore Our Humanity, said that the group has been working “behind the scenes” for some time and has now decided to make its plans public. Spencer also explained that the organization will detail its legal argument at a later date, but for now is focusing on raising awareness and developing a public profile.

The ban was originally approved in 2004 by a two-to-one margin.
