Marriage lawsuit filed in North Dakota -- the last state whose ban went unchallenged
Seven same-sex couples have filed a lawsuit challenging North Dakota’s ban on marriage equality. This means that lawsuits are pending in ALL 31 states that ban same-sex marriage. Every single one.
Judges have overturned several of those bans since the U.S. Supreme Court struck down part of the federal Defense of Marriage Act last year.
Minneapolis-based attorney Josh Newville, who is representing the North Dakota couples, also filed a lawsuit on behalf of South Dakota couples in May.
We are on the brink of something huge.
