ACLU: KS Gay Couples Harmed by Marriage Delay


TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Civil liberties attorneys are telling the U.S. Supreme Court that delaying gay marriage in Kansas will harm same-sex couples and their families. The American Civil Liberties Union responded to a request from Kansas to the court to maintain the state's ban on same-sex marriage. Justice Sonia Sotomayor directed the ACLU to respond by Tuesday afternoon. The state wants to enforce its ban while the federal courts review a lawsuit filed by the ACLU for two lesbian couples. A federal judge last week ordered the state to stop enforcing its ban as of 5 p.m. CST Tuesday, but Kansas appealed to the nation's highest court. Sotomayor on Monday put the judge's order on hold.
