GREENSBORO, N.C. — The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is expected to announce a lawsuit Wednesday over North Carolina’s ban on same sex marriage.

The ACLU is expected to make an announcement at 2 p.m. Wednesday, in Greensboro.

In 2012 North Carolina became the 30th state to adopt a ban on gay marriage and since then federal courts have repeatedly chosen to strike down state bans on same sex marriage.

The ACLU plans to take legal steps in an effort to overturn North Carolina’s law that defines marriage as between one man and one woman.
