ACLU-NJ joins NJ freedom to marry lawsuit

As reported by the Associated Press:

"The American Civil Liberties Union has joined a lawsuit arguing that same-sex couples don't have full rights under New Jersey's civil unions law.

"The ACLU's New Jersey chapter said Monday that New Jersey's law 'has failed to fulfill the actual promise of equality.'

"In 2006, the state Supreme Court ruled that gay couples deserve equal treatment, but left the details up to the state Legislature. It responded by legalizing civil unions.

"Gay rights groups continued to seek full marriage rights, but in January the state Senate defeated a bill to legalize the freedom to marry."
