AG Remains Tight-Lipped on Same Sex Marriage Issue

State Attorney General Robert Cooper is being cautious in his response to a conservative Christian group that is calling for him to nullify Collegedale’s decision to pay health benefits to same-sex spouses of city employees. According to the Nashville Scene, Cooper’s office told the group, “We will continue to watch events around the state and take steps when appropriate in light of the fact that the Supreme Court’s DOMA decision did not invalidate state laws regarding marriage.”
