GAY RIGHTS GROUP CHALLENGING MARRIAGE BAN
Associated Press


SALEM, Ore. (AP) - A gay rights group is challenging an amendment to Oregon's Constitution banning same-sex marriage, arguing it revises rather than amends the document.

The ban should be overturned because "it violates the fundamental principle of civil rights for Oregonians on which the Oregon Constitution is based," said Roey Thorpe of Basic Rights Oregon.

The group filed a lawsuit Monday that also argues the ban makes more than one change to the constitution in violation of state law barring multiple changes under a single ballot measure.
