USA, Nevada: Lambda Legal Files Appeal in Marriage Equality Case

Written by scott on October 19th, 2013

Nevada mapState of Nevada is moving up the line to become one of the next states have marriage equality.

SDGLN reports:

Lambda Legal today filed its opening brief with the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in a case on behalf of eight same-gender couples challenging the amendment to Nevada’s constitution and other state laws banning marriage for gay and lesbian couples. “The world has changed dramatically since we filed this lawsuit over a year ago,” said Tara Borelli, staff attorney in Lambda Legal’s Western Regional Office. “After the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling striking down Section 3 of DOMA, Nevada’s ban on marriage for same-sex couples has become exponentially more harmful to same-sex couples who are barred from a sweeping array of federal benefits as well.”

It looks like the marriage equality lawsuits are outpacing the ballot initiatives in a number of states.
