MADISON, Wis. — Marriage equality advocates on Thursday dropped off more than 3,200 petitions at the Wisconsin Attorney General’s office, hoping to assert some last minute influence ahead of Tuesday’s hearing on the state’s same0sex marriage ban at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit.
Members of the advocacy group of Wisconsin Unites for Marriage say it doesn’t make sense for the state to be using resources to defend the ban, and are hoping Attorney General J.B Van Hollen will see the petitions and understand the impact the ban has on the LGBT community.
Van Hollen’s office says the appeal will carry on as planned in Chicago.
