Gay couples sue state of Florida that same-sex marriage is unconstitutional
A Florida lawsuit is asking a judge to declare the state's refusal to recognize same-sex marriages as unconstitutional.
Eight gay couples and the American Civil Liberties Union filed the lawsuit. They also want same-sex marriages performed in other states recognized in Florida.
In 2008 Florida voted to add a ban on same-sex marriage to the state constitution. The ban was also challenged in a January lawsuit filed in Miami-Dade County by six gay couples.
