Day files constitutional motion in same-sex marriage fight

Sep 13, 2018 News

Chantelle Day and Vickie Bodden continue their push to have their same-sex marriage recognized in the Cayman Islands. The couple earlier this year filed for judicial review of a decision to deny her and her partner a marriage license. They were due in court on Thursday (13 September) for a directions hearing, but Ms. Day confirmed they plan to file a constitutional motion in addition to the judicial review. The constitutional motion is expected to be filed by the end of the month and a decision was taken to combine the motion and judicial review. A new directions hearing was set for the beginning of October. Ms. Day is being represented by attorney Ben Tonner.
