Nevada

In Nevada, Lambda Legal has filed a federal lawsuit seeking  marriage for same-sex couples.

“Every day that same-sex couples in Nevada are denied marriage equality, the government sends a message that their families are not worthy of equal dignity and respect,” said Lambda Legal staff attorney Tara Borelli, who represents the 8 same-sex couples challenging the state constitutional ban on same-sex marriages.
