The ACLU filed a lawsuit in federal court on Wednesday seeking to overturn a voter-approved marriage equality ban in North Carolina. The lawsuit involves three same-sex couples affected by critical medical conditions. The ACLU also moved to expedite a 2012 lawsuit challenging the ban, citing urgent health needs. "Nothing should delay loving and committed couples from having the security and recognition that comes with marriage," said Jennifer Rudinger, executive director of ACLU North Carolina.
