Louisiana mapToday is the day for the Louisiana marriage equality lawsuit in court.

On Top Magazine reports:

A federal judge on Wednesday will hear arguments in a case challenging Louisiana’s ban on gay marriage. LGBT rights group Forum for Equality Louisiana filed a case in February on behalf of four gay couples who say the state’s refusal to recognize their out-of-state marriages violates the U.S. constitutional guarantees of equal protection and due process. The case was consolidated with a similar challenge involving two gay couples.
U.S. District Judge Martin Feldman, who was nominated to the bench by Republican President Ronald Reagan, will hear arguments in the case in New Orleans.

We’ve reached a saturation point where every state that has not embraced marriage equality now has at least one lawsuit pushing for it. How far we’ve come in the year since Windsor.
