Less than a month after filing the first legal challenge to Wyoming's gay marriage law, a Cheyenne couple has dropped its lawsuit.
Plaintiffs David Shupe-Roderick, 25, and Ryan W. Dupree, 21, withdrew the lawsuit in federal court on Friday.
The suit, filed Aug. 13, alleged that Wyoming's law defining marriage as being a contract solely "between a male and a female person" was unconstitutional.
However, the suit came under fire from some gay-rights activists who worried about the lawsuit's legal arguments and Shupe-Roderick's history of litigation and criminal activities.
Shupe-Roderick did not return a phone call seeking comment Wednesday.
