Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Dina Titus of Nevada’s First District released the following statement today after the Nevada Attorney General withdrew her brief in support of the state’s gay marriage ban in the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals:

“I’m pleased the Attorney General withdrew the current brief in support of the state’s gay marriage ban, but the brief should not have been filed in the first place. This should be the end of it. The State should stop standing in the way of progress and make it clear that all Nevada families, regardless of sexual orientation, are entitled to equal treatment under the law. I will continue to fight discrimination at the state and federal level because marriage equality is not about special rights for a few, but equal rights for all.”
