Judge Favors Combining Gay Marriage Suits

June 10, 2004|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

A Superior Court judge is recommending that five cases dealing with same-sex marriage be coordinated, bringing the city's challenge to marriage laws one step closer to trial.

The city's attorneys had opposed combining cases on grounds that doing so could delay the city's lawsuit, which contends that state laws defining marriage as between a man and a woman are discriminatory and violate the state constitution. But a spokesman for the city attorney's office said he is confident the matters will move ahead promptly.
