USA, Utah: Gay Couple Sues for Marriage Equality

Written by scott on July 4th, 2013

Utah MapLooks like there’s a pending marriage equality lawsuit in Utah, too. Deseret News has the details:

Salt Lake residents Derek Kitchen and Moudi Sbiety want to get married, but not in California or Iowa or one of the other 10 states that allow gay marriage. “We don’t plan to get married in any other state but Utah,” Sbiety said. “We don’t want to live in any other state. Our friends are here. Our families are here. Utah is home and we can’t see ourselves living anywhere else.” … In Utah, it will play out in federal court where Sbiety and Kitchen are plaintiffs in a federal lawsuit challenging a Utah voter-approved constitutional amendment that defines marriage as between a man and a woman. But state lawmakers might have some decisions ahead of them, while advocates and opponents of same-sex marriage promise to make their voices heard.

Yet another lawsuit moving forward on the strength of the US Supreme Court decisions. Bet the Mormon Church is unhappy about this one.
