Westboro Baptist Attempt To Intervene In Same-Sex Marriage Case Again Rejected

In Marie v. Moser, (D KA, Dec. 18, 2014), a Kansas federal district court for a second time (see prior posting) refused to allow Westboro Baptist Church to intervene as a party in a lawsuit challenging the Kansas ban on same-sex marriage. The court said that WBC's arguments were based on speculation about future possible claims by same-sex couples.  WBC was allowed to continue to file amicus briefs to assert arguments it would like the court to consider.
