Idaho Attorney General Lawrence Wasden Filed A Motion To Stop Challenge Against Marriage Equality Ban

Idaho Attorney General Lawrence Wasden tries to stop the challenge against the state's marriage equality ban.

Last November, 4 lesbian couples instituted proceedings against the prohibition of same-sex marriage arguing the fact, as reports the SFGate, that this prohibition voted in 2006 violates the U.S. Constitution's equal protection.

Following this, Attorney General Wasden filed a motion to have the lawsuit stopped. He thinks that courts haven't ruled that same-sex marriage is a fundamental right and Idaho's ban does not violate the couples' rights according to the site.

He also said that the decision of the U.S. Supreme Court allows each state to define its own marriage law.

I just hope this motion will be rejected as quickly as possible.
