A lawsuit challenging New York's same-sex marriage law can continue, a New York state supreme court justice ruled Tuesday.
The judge said it's possible that the state violated its open meeting law when it legalized same-sex marriage last year.
Justice Robert Wiggins has agreed to hear the case argued by New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms, a Christian lobbying group.
The state had asked Wiggins to dismiss the case.
However, Wiggins said a trial is warranted to examine closed door gatherings before the vote that may have violated the open meeting law.
New York became the sixth state to allow same-sex marriage in July.
