Fair Wisconsin, Lambda Legal and ACLU seek to enter the fray

Fair Wisconsin is asking the State Supreme Court to allow them to “intervene” in Appling v. Doyle. This is a case brought by 3 Wisconsin Family Action board members challenging the constitutionality of the statewide, same-sex-only domestic partnership registry authored by Governor Doyle and signed into law by the governor as a part of the state budget.  In November 2006, over 1.25 million Wisconsin citizens voted by nearly 60%  to amend our state constitution to clearly define and protect marriage as the union of one man and one woman.  Fair Wisconsin led the charge against the amendment.

Lamda Legal, a legal group devoted to advancing the homosexual agenda, which includes changing the definition of marriage to include persons of the same sex, is representing Fair Wisconsin.

We have learned that the ACLU is representing five same-sex couples who are also seeking to intervene in this case.

The Wisconsin Family Action board members are represented by Attorney Michael Dean of First Freedoms Foundation and Attorney Richard Essenberg, as well as by attorneys from Alliance Defense Fund.  WFA board members and their attorneys learned about the intervention motions after the media had been notified.  As of this writing, the Appling and the other petitioners and their attorneys had not yet received the briefs from the Lambda Legal and the ACLU.

    Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage ; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
