— — Wisconsin’s marriage license law is being challenged in court.
The Wisconsin State Journal reports that lawyers for the American Civil Liberties Union and the Wisconsin Family Policy Council are challenging the constitutionality of the law on the grounds that it is unconstitutional.
They’re seeking to overturn a Wisconsin Supreme Court ruling last month that said the state cannot regulate marriage as the union of a man with a woman.
It’s not the first time the ACLU and the FPCC have fought marriage in court; last year, they filed suit against the state of Oregon, claiming it was violating the state’s constitution.
If Wisconsin wins, it would mark a victory for equality in the nation.
In the meantime, the state says it has no plans to change its law.
“We don’t anticipate any changes to our existing marriage law,” the Wisconsin State Attorney General’s office said in a statement.
