New Orleans same-sex couple sues for marriage license

06/29/09 Times-Picayune (source: ADF Alliance Alert):

ADF Alliance Alert identified an earlier article about Bonilla v. Hurst, a pro se lawsuit in Lousiana in which a same-sex couple claims that the state constitutional ban on gay marrige violates due process and equal protection under the 14th Amendment.

"The arguments against gay marriage are pretty silly, " [plaintiff Kristoffer] Bonilla said. "As history progresses, you can't make silly arguments anymore ... There is a deep personal meaning of what it feels like to be a second-class citizen, to be told that my love is unworthy of state recognition."

I suspect that Bonilla and Perry will be consolidated if the Supreme Court grants cert.
