NJ gay marriage debate heads back to court
Six same-sex couples who once sued New Jersey for the right to marry will head back to court Thursday.
The couples claim the state is continuing to discriminate against them. Gay and lesbian couples along with Garden State Equality, an advocacy group, say the civil union law enacted by the state has failed to meet their needs. They argue that the state must pass a law legalizing gay matrimony.
Opponents of the law say there's no constitutional right for same-sex couples to wed.
An attempt to pass the law failed earlier this year.
