NEW YORK: Court Rules Against Liberty Counsel's Challenge To Marriage
Another shot of good news for your weekend, not that the Liberty Counsel had a chance in hell to succeed.
The Appellate Division of state Supreme Court in Rochester ruled against gay marriage opponents who argued that state senators violated New York's open meeting rules ahead of the law's passage on June 24, 2011. The law was given final legislative approval by the state Senate after weeks of intensive lobbying and swiftly signed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo. New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms claimed Cuomo and another gay marriage supporter, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, met behind closed doors with the Senate's Republican majority in violation of the law.The three groups that had petitioned the court were Torah Jews For Decency, Liberty Counsel, and New Yorkers For Constitutional Freedoms.
