Judge Sets New Hearing Date in Gay Marriage Suit

KSAL StaffOctober 28, 2014

A federal judge has set a new hearing on the lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union challenging the state’s ban on same-sex marriage.

A court notice filed Tuesday shows the hearing on the ACLU’s request for an order forcing Kansas to allow gay marriages is set for 2:30 p.m. Friday before U.S. District Judge Daniel Crabtree in Kansas City, Kansas.

The ACLU filed the lawsuit for two lesbian couples denied marriage licenses in Douglas and Sedgwick counties after the U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear appeals from five other states seeking to preserve bans on gay marriage.

The ACLU is seeking a temporary injunction that would bring Kansas into line with a 10th Circuit Court of Appeals precedent set in other cases.
