Lawsuit Seeks to Force Implementation of Gay Marriage in Illinois


Even though Governor Pat Quinn is poised to sign same-sex marriage into law later this month, a lawsuit that was filed to force that change is still pending… and attorneys for the plaintiffs say the legal fight may not be over yet.

 

The attorneys say they may seek a court order to allow gay couples to wed right away, instead of having to wait until next June 1st, the current effective date of the new law.

 

The plaintiffs say the lack of marriage equality is a violation of their rights… a violation that would persist for months unless the court intervenes.

 

The case is currently on hold, but another hearing is planned for November 14th.
