According to Newville, the United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth District, which has jurisdiction in South Dakota, "is the only court that has a bad precedent on this issue." "In 2006 there was a challenge to Nebraska's [same-sex marriage] ban and during oral arguments one of the judges compared same-sex marriage to marrying your dog," Newville says.
