GALVESTON, Texas - A Galveston man has withdrawn a federal lawsuit challenging a clause in the Texas Constitution defining marriage as between a man and a woman.
Domenico Nuckols, 60, said Wednesday his decision came after a conference call with representatives of the American Civil Liberties Union. He also received a letter from Lambda Legal, the gay rights legal organization, explaining that it was filing lawsuits in the states where chances of success were highest.
"I don't really know how it would have gone in district court," Nuckols said about his lawsuit. "But if it had been appealed to the 5th Circuit (court of appeals), being how conservative it is, it would have gotten shot down there."
