Will The Trial Against The Marriage Equality Ban Take Place In Georgia? The Question Remains

Written by

It's been over six months since the challenge against the marriage equality ban was launched in Georgia and finally there is something going on.

The motion filed in federal court tries to repeal the ban approved in 2004. There are only a few days for the state, until January 24, to respond.

An attempt to overturn the trial was filed on July 2014 but, a few days ago, it has been rejected by US District Judge William Duffy. The trial would take place.

However, according to WXIA-TV, Attorneys fighting for marriage equality say a wild-card motion could be filed that eliminates the trial and paves the way for gay marriage – or they could wait until as late as June 2016, if the case heads to the US Supreme Court.
