SC group launching same-sex marriage effort

COLUMBIA, SC (AP) -

A group in South Carolina is teaming up with the American Civil Liberties Union to explore legal options for same-sex couples.

SC Equality said Wednesday it was launching a "Post-DOMA Litigation Task Force." Organizers say the all-volunteer effort will take a look at what options are available to same-sex couples who live in South Carolina and have a legal marriage from another state.

Same-sex marriages are currently legal in 13 states and Washington, D.C. Several other states allow unions or domestic partnerships for gay and lesbian couples.

Earlier this summer, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that federal benefits should be provided to gay couples who are legally married.
