MIAMI - A coalition of groups supporting Florida's constitutional ban on same-sex marriage want a judge to dismiss a lawsuit that seeks to overturn that ban.
The ban passed with 62 percent of the vote.
The lawsuit was filed in January in Miami-Dade County Circuit Court by six gay couples who say the state ban violates the U.S. Constitution's guarantees of equal protection and due process.
Judges have struck down same-sex marriage bans in other states.
