NEW ORLEANS - A federal judge has set a mid-July deadline for filing briefs on multiple issues involving gay marriage in Louisiana.

U.S. District Judge Martin Feldman has already heard arguments on some of those issues regarding Louisiana's refusal to recognize the unions of gay couples legally married in other states. On Thursday, he set a July 16 deadline for attorneys to file briefs on related issues - including whether the state's refusal to let same-sex couples marry in the state violates their rights to due process and equal protection.

Feldman will decide later whether to hold more arguments on those issues.
