D.C. Same-Sex Marriage Opponents Take Case Back To Superior Court

By Jonathan Wilson

Supporters of a measure to ban same-sex marriage in Washington are taking their case to D.C.'s Superior Court--again.

Lawyers for the Alliance Defense Fund and Stand 4 Marriage D.C. have filed a lawsuit challenging Tuesday's ruling by the city's board of elections and ethics.

The ruling stated that putting a same-sex marriage ban on the a ballot would violate the city's Human Rights Act. The Alliance Defense Fund and Stand 4 Marriage D.C. say the board's reasoning is invalid.

Both the ruling and the court challenge were expected. A Superior Court Judge rejected a similar request from same-sex marriage opponents in June.
