A North Carolina group opposed to gay marriage has filed an Amicus Brief with the US Supreme Court.  The move puts North Carolina's gay marriage ban back squarely in spotlight.  Last May, North Carolinians went to the polls to vote on Amendment One, which would effectively ban gay marriage in the state's constitution.  Tami Fitzgerald is Executive Director of the North Carolina Values Coalition, the group that spearheaded the effort to pass the amendment.
