Lambda and ACLU Ask Appeals Court to Reverse Ruling on Gay Marriage Ban

Following a federal appeals court ruling that reinstated Nebraska's ban on gay marriage, Lambda and the ACLU's Lesbian and Gay Project asked the court to either reverse its decision or rehear the case.

"The federal appeals court panel ... just ignored the U.S. Supreme Court, which has ruled that states can't pass laws just to discriminate against gay people," said Matt Coles, director of the ACLU's Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Project. "We are hopeful that the court will recognize this decision simply can't be squared with constitutional guarantees of equality."
