GLAD filed this lawsuit to challenge the Attorney General’s decision that a proposed ballot question that would once again exclude same-sex couples from marriage satisfies the Massachusetts constitution.  The suit was filed on January 3, 2006 and oral arguments took place in Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court on May 4, 2006. The SJC ruled on July 10, 2006 that the citizen-initiated ballot question challenging marriage equality for same-sex couples could go forward.
