Gay rights groups appeal Georgia same-sex marriage referendum ruling Chris Buell at 11:09 AM ET
A coalition including the ACLU appealed Wednesday to the Georgia Supreme Court a lower-court ruling allowing a same-sex marriage constitutional ban to appear on ballots in the Nov. 2 elections. According to the group, the referendum should not be used since it will not allow voters to read the full text of what would be altered in the state constitution. The group is seeking a decision by the court before the elections.
