USA, Utah: Briefs Filed in Marriage Equality Case

Written by scott on October 12th, 2013

Utah MapBoth sides filed legal briefs in a lawsuit to overturn the state’s ban on marriage equality.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports:

On one side, the state argues it has the right to set as policy an “age-old and still predominant” definition of marriage as a union of a man and a woman. On the other, the three couples say the choice of a marriage partner is a “fundamental right and liberty interest” protected by the U.S. Constitution.

The hearing in the case is planned for December 4th.
