A gay couple in Wyoming has dropped a federal lawsuit challenging the state’s law limiting marriage to one man and one woman.
The Casper Star-Tribune reports David Shupe-Roderick and Ryan W. Dupree filed a notice Friday dismissing their lawsuit against the state. They say they’re dismissing their suit because “unspecified circumstances had changed.”
The two men were representing themselves in the case, although neither is a lawyer. The couple filed the suit in August, alleging the law defining marriage as being "between a male and a female person" was unconstitutional.
