Wyoming Asks Judge to Dismiss Challenge to Gay Marriage Ban

The state of Wyoming is asking a U.S. District judge to dismiss a lawsuit brought by four gay couples last month challenging the state's ban on gay marriage.

The AP reports: Wyoming

The plaintiffs are the Cheyenne-based gay rights group Wyoming Equality and four couples — two who were married outside Wyoming and two who want to wed in Wyoming. Their lawsuit seeks to force state officials to recognize gay marriages performed outside Wyoming and to allow gay couples to marry inside the state.

In its response, the AG's Office denies many of the plaintiffs' claims. For example, it denies that the state's position on the same-sex marriage issue violates the constitutional rights of same-sex couples and subjects them to "second-class" status relative to the rest of the people in the state.

  1. Here we go. Another right wing nut bag of a state that is going to LOSE in and out of court. Join the 21st century,Wyoming. Or you'll become the Georgia,Mississippi of the West.

  2. And to think Wyoming was the first state to allow women to vote. They've obviously regressed to men only again. (Think jeebus buy-bull anyone)

    What else would the state do but deny. However, that denial won't give their citizens equality and they will still be second class..

  4. Thanks for that, Wyoming. It was already a good day, but the laugh made it even better.
