Nine same-sex couples have filed a lawsuit in Denver District Court seeking to overturn Colorado’s constitutional ban on gay marriage.
The lawsuit is the latest of several filed in states across the nation challenging gay marriage bans, including Utah’s and Oklahoma’s that are currently before the U.S. 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver. The issue is likely to culminate in a Supreme Court review.
The lawsuit, filed Wednesday, names Gov. John Hickenlooper and Denver City Clerk Debra Johnson as defendants.
