NEBRASKA: FRC May Sue To Force Referendum On LGBT Rights Law

A Nebraska affiliate of the Family Research Council is apparently planning to sue the city of Lincoln in order force a public referendum on overturning that town's LGBT rights law.  Via Aksarbent:
David Bydalek (left) of Family First, Nebraska, an affiliate of the Family Research Council, and Al Riskowki, of the Nebraska Family Council, want the issue on the ballot and are considering seeking a writ of mandamus that would force city officials to perform what they consider the city's statutory duty, although city statutes don’t say how soon a referendum election must be held after signatures are verified.
The Lincoln City Council unanimously approved its LGBT anti-discrimination bill last May.
