Breaking News!! Wyoming Gay Marriage Lawsuit Dropped!!

This just in from the Casper Star Tribune!! The Lawsuit that was filed last month in Wyoming arguing for gay marriage has been dropped by the plaintiffs. The only thing I can say about this is THANK GOD!! As I said before, the plaintiffs were going at this all the wrong way, with no legal representative, sketchy personal histories, and a potentially illegitimate case at that. LGBT people in Wyoming can breath a sigh of relief that all their work to make inroads in the legislature is not hurt by some upstart young men trying to grab 15 minutes of fame.

Less than a month after filing the first legal challenge to Wyoming's gay marriage law, a Cheyenne couple has dropped its lawsuit.
Plaintiffs David Shupe-Roderick, 25, and Ryan W. Dupree, 21, withdrew the lawsuit in federal court on Friday.
The suit, filed Aug. 13, alleged that Wyoming's law defining marriage as being a contract solely "between a male and a female person" was unconstitutional.
However, the suit came under fire from some gay-rights activists who worried about the lawsuit's legal arguments and Shupe-Roderick's history of litigation and criminal activities.
Shupe-Roderick did not return a phone call seeking comment Wednesday.
