Connecticut's state supreme court will hear a case arguing for same-sex marriage. Eight couples are slated to file their brief on Wednesday. The AP reports that the group's lawsuit was initiated in August 2004, before the state granted civil unions to same-sex couples.
Lawyers for Gay and Lesbian Advocates and Defenders along with other attorneys for the couples previously filed the brief in a lower court, which ruled that civil unions were sufficiently similar to marriage. The state is the second in the nation to offer civil unions, after Vermont. (The Advocate)
