USA, Colorado: Nine Couples Sue for Marriage Equality

Written by scott on February 18th, 2014

ColoradoAnother marriage equality lawsuit, this one in Colorado.

KDVR reports:

Nine gay couples are expected to file a lawsuit in state court to challenge Amendment 43, Colorado’s voter-approved ban on same-sex marriage, although there is growing uncertainty that the suit will be filed Tuesday as initially indicated by the plaintiffs’ law firm. On Monday afternoon, the law firm Reilly Pozner announced a press conference at its downtown offices at 10 a.m. Tuesday but declined to say what the suit was about, only that “nine Colorado couples, four of whom are legally married, will explain recent events that on Tuesday morning led them to file a precedent-setting civil rights lawsuit against the State of Colorado.”

With lawsuits pending in Utah, Nevada, and now Colorado, and marriage equality in New Mexico and California, I imagine the anti-gay folks in Arizona are quaking in their boots.
