    Gay couples, ACLU seek Fla. marriage recognition[W:134]

    Gay couples, ACLU seek Fla. marriage recognition

    http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/n...riage/6372117/


    MIAMI BEACH, Florida (AP) — Eight gay couples and a top civil rights group have sued the state of Florida, arguing it is discriminating against the couples by not recognizing same-sex marriages performed in states where they are legal.
    The lawsuit is the latest in a groundswell of challenges in America's divisive gay marriage debate. Within the last 30 days, suits similar to the one in Florida have been filed in Alabama and Indiana. In Kentucky, a federal judge ordered the state to recognize same-sex marriages performed legally in other states and countries.

    add another one to the list!!!

    this isnt a big change because florida was already working on legislation to possible make the changes so they just move groups but it is progress none the less!
    Id say at the latest in 2017 this wont be news all states will have equality.
