FARGO, N.D. — A second lawsuit has been filed in federal court challenging North Dakota’s ban on same-sex marriage.
Cases are currently pending in all 31 states with gay marriage bans.
Jorgensen and Phillips are represented by the national gay rights group Lambda Legal. Attorney Kyle Palazzolo says the couple approached Lambda about legal action because of the marriage momentum around the country.
A spokeswoman with the North Dakota attorney general’s office did not respond to a request for comment.
