ACLU to Amend Gay-Marriage Lawsuit Against Kansas

KSAL StaffNovember 21, 2014

The lawyer who sued to overturn Kansas’ ban on same-sex marriages says he will amend the lawsuit to try and force state agencies to provide benefits to married same-sex couples.

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled last week that the state can’t enforce its ban on same-sex marriages. But Gov. Sam Brownback’s administration said this week it will not make any policy changes to recognize the marriages while it defends the ban against the federal lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union.

Some counties are issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples but others are not.

The Wichita Eagle reports Doug Bonney, who represented the couples suing the state, said Thursday the lawsuit will be amended to force state agencies to grant full legal rights to the newly married couples.
