Attorney Requests Ruling In Gay Marriage Case

July 7, 2014, 2:52 PM

Attorney Requests Ruling In Gay Marriage Case
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

The attorney representing the six same-sex couples challenging South Dakota's gay marriage ban has asked a judge to bypass a trial and issue a ruling.

Minneapolis-based attorney Joshua Newville filed the motion for summary judgment last week. In the same memorandum Newville included a response to the state's motion to dismiss the case.

Newville filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in May. The lawsuit challenges a 1996 state law passed by the Legislature and a voter-approved 2006 constitutional amendment banning gay marriage.

The motion says there are no material facts in dispute in the case and says the plaintiffs are entitled to summary judgment as a matter of law.

Newville is also representing seven same-sex couples in a separate North Dakota lawsuit as well.
