The New York Attorney General has asked a state court to dismiss a lawsuit challenging the state’s same-sex marriage law. New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms and several other opponents allege that Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) “improperly waived the three-day waiting period between a bill’s introduction and a vote” even though “such waivers are common in Albany for negotiated bills.” Attorney General Eric Schneiderman argued in papers filed Friday that “the opponents haven’t been harmed by the law, don’t have standing to challenge the actions of the Senate and any procedural actions of the Senate and governor aren’t subject to judicial review.”
