Lambda Legal has joined a lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Puerto Rico seeking the freedom to marry for same-sex couples in Puerto Rico and to compel Puerto Rico to recognize... the legal marriages of same-sex couples entered into in other jurisdictions. A commonwealth of the United States, Puerto Rico is an island with a richly diverse population of LGBT couples who need the freedom to marry where they live, and it is also the home of many legally married LGBT people who seek to have their marriages recognized. The amended lawsuit has been filed on behalf of five plaintiff couples, as well as Puerto Rico Para Tod@s, the island’s leading LGBT advocacy organization, and challenges the Commonwealth’s marriage ban as a violation of equal protection and due process guarantees of the U.S. Constitution.
