Gay Couple Files Suit, Demanding Marriage in Wyoming

David Shupe-Roderick and Ryan W. Dupree of Cheyenne, Wyoming have filed suit, challenging the state's law defining marriage as between a man and a woman after being refused a marriage license, the AP reports:

Wyoming"They're asking U.S. District Judge Alan B. Johnson to stop the state from enforcing any laws that block gays and lesbians from access to civil marriage. Wyoming Attorney General Bruce Salzburg declined comment Tuesday, saying he hadn't reviewed the lawsuit yet. Shupe-Roderick and Dupree are acting as their own attorneys in the case."

The suit was filed on August 13, according to Wyoming court records.
