Kansas Urges Dismissal of Federal Gay Marriage Lawsuit

The state of Kansas is asking a federal judge to drop a gay marriage lawsuit. At issue is whether the state must provide services such as joint tax filings and driver’s license name changes to same sex married couples. American Civil Liberties Union attorney Mark Johnson, who represents the plaintiffs, says the state is trying to claim the lawsuit’s already settled.
 


U.S. District Judge Daniel Crabtree is considering whether to permanently halt state officials from enforcing the state’s constitutional ban on gay marriage. The Kansas Supreme Court in November left it to chief judges in each of the state's 31 judicial districts to determine whether marriage licenses would be issued to same-sex couples.
