Abstract The plaintiffs include Susan and Sally Waters of Omaha who have been together for 17 years. In January 2013, Sally was diagnosed with breast cancer and her future is uncertain.

The plaintiffs allege that the state’s constitutional marriage ban unlawfully discriminates against lesbians, gay men, and their children. Due to Sally Waters’ medical condition, the attorneys will be filing a separate motion for emergency relief.
