Connecticut Court Hears Challenge to Marriage Laws

Connecticut's marriage laws were challenged in Superior Court in that state Tuesday. The Attorney General asserted that it was reasonable for the state to create civil unions but that gays and lesbians did not have a fundamental right to marry.  The attorney for the challengers charged that the law “is nothing less than the government's announcement that these are second-class citizens.''   However the trial court judge rules, the matter is expected to be appealed to Connecticut's Supreme Court.  Source:  AP, Cara Rubinsky, guardian.co.uk.   Please click here for the complete story (last visited March 22, 2006, reo).
