AP: Cuomo Slapped Down Hard by NY Judge, Lawsuit Allowed to Proceed

 

The Associated Press:

A state judge has refused to dismiss a suit challenging the gay marriage law signed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo (KWOH'-moh) in June, concluding there is an issue whether New York's open meetings law was violated.

New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms and other opponents claim the law should be nullified because the state Senate Republican majority met illegally with Cuomo behind closed doors, where Cuomo sought support before the critical vote that led to its narrow passage.
