Geiger v. Kitzhaber: Multnomah County Joins Plaintiffs – Strike Down Marriage Bans!

Multnomah County filed its response to our Motion for Summary Judgment.  Jenny Makdour and Katharine Von Ter Stegge, lawyers for the County, write:  “Multnomah County joins the Plaintiffs of both cases in asking this Court to carefully consider the constitutionality of Oregon laws prohibiting same-sex marriage and then strike them down.”

and

Current Oregon law discriminates against same-sex couples seeking to marry,” Madkour wrote. “The guarantees of the United States Constitution, however, extend to all Oregonians, regardless of whom they choose to love and with whom they choose to make a life. Oregon’s exclusionary marriage laws should be struck down.”
