NJ: Lambda Legal to file same-sex “marriage” petition with Supreme Court Thursday

NJ.com, The Auditor: “The Auditor is told Lambda Legal on Thursday will file a petition with the Supreme Court to establish the right to gay marriage. ‘We’ve lived the agony of defeat,’ said Steve Goldstein, head of Garden State Equality. ‘Now it’s time for the thrill of victory.’ The defeat came in January when the Senate rejected a bill to establish same-sex marriage. Gay rights advocates contend the state’s civil union law falls short of the court’s 2006 order for lawmakers to provide equal rights for gays seeking to marry.”
