Lawsuit Challenging Legality of New York Gay Marriage Law Gets First Hearing

 

An update from New Yorker's Family Research Foundation:

A lawsuit challenging the legality of the process that brought gay “marriage” legislation to the floor of the New York State Senate was filed in the Livingston County Supreme Court on Monday, July 25, 2011.

New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms, Rev. Jason J. McGuire, Rev. Duane R. Motley and Rabbi Nathaniel S. Leiter are listed as plaintiffs.

... Rev. Jason J. McGuire, Executive Director, New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms, said, “Constitutional liberties were violated. We are asking the court to intervene in its rightful role as the check and balance on an out-of-control State Legislature.”

“It is unfortunate that state senators chose to protect their personal interests, rather than the people they were elected to represent. Some of the players may have changed, but it looks like same old Albany game. It is time the curtain be pulled back and the disinfecting light of good government shine upon the Cuomo Administration and our State Legislature,” McGuire concluded.
