FEDERAL JUDGE DENIES GEORGIA ATTORNEY GENERAL’S MOTION TO DISMISS IN SAME-SEX MARRIAGE LAWSUIT
Georgia Equality is pleased to report that the jugde for Georgia’s marriage equality lawsuit has denied Georgia Attorney General Sam Olens’ motion to dismiss. Georgia’s lawsuit will continue forward in it’s effort to bring the freedom to marry to Georgia.
“We congratulate our colleagues at Lambda Legal on their great work and success in this case, and look forward to working toward continued success together” said Jeff Graham, Executive Director of Georgia Equality. “While this in no way indicates the judge’s opinion on same-sex marriage, it is encouraging that even one of the more conservative judges in the district is unwilling to accept the State’s tired claim, based on no evidence, that opposite sex couples are better for children.”
