Another Colorado Marriage Equality Lawsuit

Written by scott on July 2nd, 2014

ColoradoColorado marriage equality got a boost as six couples filed a federal lawsuit in the state.

LGBTQ Nation reports:

Six same-sex couples from across Colorado filed a federal lawsuit challenging the state’s ban on same-sex marriage. The suit is the third such challenge to Colorado’s same-sex marriage ban, but the first to be filed in federal court. The case cites last week’s ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit that upheld a District Court ruling striking down Utah’s same-sex marriage ban. The ruling was the first time a federal appeals court said same-sex couples have a constitutional right to marry, although the ruling was put on hold pending a likely appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Anyone notice how severely the momentum has shifted here, in that there’s not a single state where someone is now suing to overturn marriage equality, or where a legislature is trying to ban it under their constitution, or where someone is trying to put a ban on the ballot? The wind is all blowing in the same direction.
