Judge to Hear Arguments in Same-Sex Marriage Lawsuit

Posted: Updated:

A Las Vegas Judge is set to hear oral arguments in Reno on Monday regarding Nevada's same-sex marriage ban.

The hearing comes after a gay rights advocacy group filed a lawsuit challenging the ban.

District Judge Robert Jones says he wants to quickly decide on the suit that names Governor Sandoval and various other officials.

The lawsuit focuses on the differences between rights granted by the state in 2009 and a gay marriage ban that was voted on back in 2002.

Jones says he plans to rely on written statements and not courtroom testimony from people offered as experts.
