Seven couples challenge same-sex marriage ban in North Dakota
FARGO – Seven couples filed a lawsuit Friday challenging North Dakota’s ban on same-sex marriage and asserting the state must recognize such marriages conducted elsewhere.
Several of the plaintiffs bringing the suit are Fargo residents, including a university professor, an opera director and a social worker. They argue that the state’s ban on same-sex marriage unconstitutionally denies them the rights granted to marriages between men and women.
