LGBTQ Nation reports:
A federal judge has rejected a motion by an anti-gay group which sought to intervene in two lawsuits challenging Florida’s constitutional ban on same-sex marriage. U.S. District Judge Robert L. Hinkle on Thursday denied the request by the Florida Family Policy Council, which is seeking to preserve the constitutional ban, but said the group could file amicus briefs on the issues presented in the case. The Florida Family Policy Council was the leading anti-gay group that advocated for the amendment when it was approved by 62 percent of voters in 2008.
The group must instead file an amicus brief. No word yet on when the judge will hear the two cases.
