PHOENIX — Lawyers for plaintiffs in one of two pending lawsuits challenging Arizona’s ban on same-sex marriage are asking a federal court to combine the suits into one case.
The motion asks that a case filed earlier this month become part of the case from a separate filed in January.
The two cases are now assigned to different judges.
Lawmakers approved a state law barring same-sex marriages in 1996. Seven years later, an Arizona appeals court upheld the constitutionality of the law.
Voters in 2008 amended the Arizona Constitution to include the ban.
