More Challenges Filed SC's Same-Sex Marriage Ban

Another lawsuit has been filed by people who say South Carolina officials refused to let them use a same-sex spouse's family name on a driver's license.

The American Civil Liberties Union and SC Equality filed the lawsuit Friday in federal court. Each plaintiff was married in another state and chose to change his or her surname but had an application to do so denied by the Department of Motor Vehicles.

The lawsuit is against the state DMV. An agency spokeswoman did not immediately return a message seeking comment.

Earlier this month, a Lexington County woman filed a similar lawsuit challenging the state's same-sex marriage ban. Other lawsuits challenging the ban are pending in federal court.
