From ‘Equality on Trial’ October 25, 2013 (excerpt)

… The first reading of the (gay marriage) bill in the state House is expected on October 31. The bill will proceed through two House committees: Judiciary and Finance.

While Hawaiians await passage of the bill, the plaintiffs’ briefing in the federal challenge to the same-sex marriage ban has been delayed until November 22. That case, Jackson v. Abercrombie, is currently at the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals awaiting an appeal from a district court decision siding with opponents of same-sex marriage. The case was on a parallel track with Lambda Legal’s challenge to Nevada’s marriage ban, Sevcik v. Sandoval, until Governor Abercrombie decided to call a special session, since the session may resolve the Hawaii case.

Governor Abercrombie, who is a party to the case but was not a part of the time extension order, has filed his opening brief in support of the plaintiffs’ challenge to the statutes banning same-sex marriage.
