Less than a week after a gay couple asked the state Supreme Court to rule on marriage equality, the Court has asked the state AG to submit an argument in the case. LGBTQ Nation reports:
New Mexico’s highest court has asked the state Attorney General and the Santa Fe County clerk to respond to a lawsuit seeking to legalize same-sex marriage. The state Supreme Court on Tuesday said their legal arguments in the case should be submitted by July 22. No hearing has been scheduled. The plaintiffs in the case, Alexander Hanna and Yon Hudson of Santa Fe, asked the Supreme Court to order Santa Fe County clerk Geraldine Salazar to issue them a marriage license.
Things could move faster in New Mexico than we expected.
