OREGON: NOM Petitions Ninth Circuit For En Banc Review Of Marriage Ruling

Because they can never take "Didn't we just tell you to fuck off?" as a hint, NOM is trying again to gain standing in Oregon.
Despite a string of legal defeats, the National Organization for Marriage is continuing its battle against the May 19 federal court decision overturning Oregon's ban on same-sex marriage. Two weeks after a three-judge panel of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals rejected the group's attempt to intervene in the case, the National Organization for Marriage on Wednesday asked the full Ninth Circuit Court to reconsider the decision. The group -- which has waged a legal battle against same-sex marriages throughout the country -- had earlier lost several attempts to insert itself in the Oregon case. In June, the U.S. Supreme Court denied a request by NOM to halt same-sex marriages in Oregon, which began after U.S. District Judge Michael McShane ruled that the ban unconstitutionally discriminated against gay and lesbian couples.
