LATTA V. OTTER (U.S.C.A. 9TH CIRCUIT, 2014)

9th Circuit Court of Appeals

This case challenges Idaho's Marriage Ban, a state law that defines marriage as exclusively between one man and one woman. ADL filed a brief on behalf of a coalition of 23 organizations arguing that overturning the marriage ban would not only ensure that religious considerations do not improperly influence which marriages the state can recognize, but would also allow religious groups to decide the definition of marriage for themselves.
