(BOISE, ID) – Idaho Attorney General Lawrence Wasden is asking a federal judge to dismiss a lawsuit challenging the state’s voter-approved marriage amendment. In November, four lesbian couples filed a lawsuit against Gov. Butch Otter alleging that Idaho’s marriage laws are discriminatory and violate the 5th and 14th Amendments of the U.S. Constitution. Wasden contends that the Supreme Court has not defined same-sex marriage as a fundamental right and that a recent ruling on the Defense of Marriage Act still allows states to define marriage as they see fit.

  • So let’s say a legally married Gay couple in Iowa decide to relocate to Idaho because of a good job opportunity. Would Idaho be able to declare that couple’s marriage null and void? And if so, would they lose the 1,138 benefits and protections the federal government bestows on married couples?
