Gay Clubs Lawsuit Moves Toward Settlement SALT LAKE CITY — The Salt Lake City School District has agreed to discuss settling a lawsuit over its ban of dozens of student clubs, including one for gay students at East High School. Attorneys on Monday said they would pursue mediation to resolve the lawsuit against the district. Jon Davidson, an attorney for the plaintiffs, said after the brief status hearing thai ihe move toward settling doesn't mean their case couldn't win at trial. He told U.S. District Judge Bruce Jenkins lhat both sides would pursue preparations for a possible trial il a solution could not be found. Tlie lawsuit was filed in March bv lhe Utah Chapter of the .American Civil Liberties Union and a pair of gay-rights advocacy groups — Lambda Legal Defense and Education Fund in New York and the National Center for Lesbian Rights, based in San Francisco.

Activists Challenge Marriage Ban in Wash. OLYMP1A — Wilh the dark days of February behind them, gay rights activists have mended a rift caused bv the Washington Legislature and are preparing to challenge a new law that bans an activity that already was illegal — same-sex marriage. The ban is among 274 measures approved earlier this year Lhat took elicit Thursday, according to Lhe secretary of state's office. Olher new laws wilh broad public interest include Ihe first wave of the Legislature's crackdown on drunken driving, an attempt to curb unwanted electronic mail and a ban on teen possession of tobacco products. But the Legislature's social conserv- alivcs considered the measure outlawing gay marriage lo be one of the greatest achievements of the 1998 session that ended in March. More than hall of the stales now have similar bans on the books. The new law, passed as House Bill 1130, defines marriage as lhe union of one man and one woman and savs lhe state will refuse lo recognize same gender marriages performed elsewhere. As the measure becomes law. leaders in ihe gay and lesbian community are discussing legal strategy. The American Civil Liberties Union ol Washington is counseling them to be patient and wait lor a ninth anticipated courl decision in I lawaii. The Hawaii Supreme Courl ruled in 1993 that denying marriage licenses In same sex couples was unconstitutional. The high court then sent the case back to a lower court lo allow the stale a final chance lo defend ils position. The state lost again, but lhe lower court delayed the issuing of marriage licenses until another appeal lo the Supreme Courl is decided. A ruling is expected sometime ihis year.
