USA, Nevada: Marriage Equality Lawsuit to Be Heard By 9th District

Written by scott on June 28th, 2013

Nevada mapJust ran across this tidbit from Edge Boston – a lawsuit for marriage equality in Nevada was rejected by the US Supreme Court, sending it to be heard in the 9th district court. Edge Boston reports:

The other case, from Nevada, was a challenge to the state’s ban on same-sex marriage. A group opposing gay marriage filed the appeal, even though it won a judgment in federal district court. The Coalition for the Protection of Marriage wanted to bypass the federal appeals court in San Francisco, but that is where the case now will be considered.

Ironic – the group wanted to secure their victory in the district court so they appealed it to the Supremes; now they’re stuck with a new hearing in the most liberal circuit court in the country that already struck down Prop 8. Suckers.
