Downstate County Clerks Allowed To Intervene In Same-Sex Marriage Lawsuit


Two downstate county clerks will be allowed to defend the state’s ban on same-sex marriage in a lawsuit filed by more than two dozen couples. 

 

When that lawsuit was originally filed several weeks ago, both Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan and Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez refused to defend the ban, indicating they agreed with the plaintiffs that the ban is unconstitutional. 

 

But the county clerks of Tazewell and Effingham Counties asked for, and were granted, permission to intervene and argue that the ban should be upheld.
