Maura Healey Wants Same-Sex Marriage Testimonials For Supreme Court Brief

BOSTON (AP) — The attorney general of Massachusetts is collecting testimonials from same-sex married couples that she may include in a friend of the court brief to be sent to the U.S. Supreme Court as it weighs the constitutionality of same-sex marriage.

Maura Healey is asking for either written or video testimonials to be sent to her office's Facebook page.

She's asking couples how marriage equality has positively changed their lives and what it would mean to have nationwide marriage equality.

Massachusetts in 2004 became the first state to allow same-sex marriage.

Some testimonials may be included in Healey's brief for the Supreme Court, which is scheduled to be filed March 6.

The nation's highest court in April will consider cases that ask them to overturn gay marriage bans in four states.
