Tom Privitere, Brian Edwards and their photographer Kristina Hill filed a lawsuit Wednesday against Public Advocate of the United States, a group that opposes gay marriage and offers support to politicians with the same message.
The couple claims the photo was copyrighted and that Public Advocate used it on its mailers without permission.
Public Advocate has not yet responded to BuzzFeed’s request for comment, but Brian Edwards explained why the couple decided to sue to NBC News:
- Liberia has reported its first Ebola death since the country was declared free of the virus in May.
- At least 30 people were reported dead after a military plane crashed into two houses in a residential neighborhood in the Indonesian city of Medan.
