Lambda Legal Reply Brief Re: Lewis v. Harris

Plaintiffs do not request that this Court create a new right, but instead that it fulfill its mandate to enforce existing rights to equality and liberty guaranteed by the New Jersey Constitution’s Article I, paragraph 1. Plaintiffs respectfully request that this Court lift the barrier to their freedom to marry, and end the State’s discrimination against individuals in committed same-sex couples who wish to make their own choice of whom to marry rather than have government restrict their choice to a category of individuals that does not include the persons whom they are drawn to love.
