Wisconsin Supreme Court Delivers Setback to Marriage Equality

The Wisconsin Supreme Court today upheld the state’s ban on same-sex marriage. The law had been challenged on a technical question regarding the 2006 ballot initiative that included the ban.

People For the American Way President Michael B. Keegan said;

“The Wisconsin Supreme Court’s delivers a setback to the Wisconsin citizens who have been denied the right to marry, but it’s far from the final word on the subject. The Court rejected a challenge to the state’s marriage ban based on a narrow technicality, not a substantive challenge to its harmful content. I look forward to seeing further legal challenges to this ban, and hope that very soon all Wisconsin citizens will be free to enjoy the protections and responsibilities of marriage.”
