A second lawsuit has been filed in Tennessee challenging the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling overturning bans on same-sex marriage.
The lawsuit was filed Thursday in Bradley County. It says the U.S. Supreme Court cannot overturn a law and then decide what the law should be. That should be up to the state legislatures, the lawsuit says.
The case challenges the same-sex marriage decision in Obergefell v. Hodges, when the justices ruled 5-4 that a definition of marriage as one man and one woman was unconstitutional and that same-sex couples could marry.
