Lawyer Considering Contesting ND Gay Marriage Ban

May 15, 2014, 12:06 PM

Lawyer Considering Contesting ND Gay Marriage Ban
BISMARCK, ND -

A Minneapolis lawyer who will soon be challenging South Dakota's constitutional ban on same-sex marriage says he's considering taking on North Dakota's ban, as well.

Joshua Newville says he's been contacted by interested couples in North Dakota who want to challenge the state's constitutional ban on same-sex marriage. North Dakotans overwhelmingly supported the constitutional amendment in 2004, passing a ballot measure with 73 percent approval.

Same-sex marriage opponents say a challenge wouldn't be entirely unexpected. When Newville officially challenges the South Dakota law, North Dakota and Montana will be the only states where same-sex marriage isn't legal or a constitutional ban isn't being contested in court.

Newville says nothing is certain and that right now he's "exploring the possibility" of representing several couples in North Dakota.
