Days before election, NE AG Jon Bruning files request to present oral arguments to defend marriage inequality before state supreme court

Attorney General Jon Bruning filed a request Tuesday to defend the state's definition of marriage before the Nebraska Supreme Court in a divorce case between Margie and Bonnie Nichols, two women married in Iowa but seeking a Nebraska divorce.
“In 2000, 70 percent of Nebraska voters chose to amend the Constitution to define marriage as a union between a man and a woman,” Bruning said in the release. “The Nebraska Constitution is clear and I will defend it.”
