Separate suit filed over state's gay marriage ban

FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A second lawsuit has been filed in federal court challenging North Dakota's ban on gay marriage.

The 33-page complaint filed by Janet Jorgensen and Cynthia Phillips, who were legally married in Minnesota, says the couple is treated as "legal strangers'' in their home state. It says North Dakota's law violates the equal protection and due process clause in the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

Cases are currently pending in all 31 states with gay marriage bans. Last week, seven couples filed a complaint to make North Dakota the last state with a challenged same-sex marriage ban.
