Alabama Marriage Equality Lawsuit Filed by the ACLU

Written by scott on June 10th, 2014

Another Alabama marriage equality lawsuit has been filed, this time by the ACLU.

ACLU LogoThe Montgomery Advertiser reports:

The lawsuit, filed Tuesday morning, is on behalf of April and Ginger Aaron-Brush, a Birmingham couple who were legally married in Massachusetts two years ago and are raising a 7-year-old daughter together. The state’s 1998 Protection of Marriage Act and 2006 Sanctity of Marriage Amendment both outlaw the recognition of same-sex marriages performed in other states. The laws already face legal challenges. The Southern Poverty Law Center sued on behalf of a Montgomery man, and two Mobile women have filed a lawsuit as well. Wendy Crew, one of the cooperating attorneys in the case, said the suit challenges the laws based on the equal protection and full faith and credit clauses of the U.S. Constitution.

Now that we’ve exhausted all the states with no lawsuits, I guess we’re going back for seconds on the states that do?
