After an unsuccessful attempt to pass gay marriage in the state Senate last year, advocates have focused on waging their battle in the court system — not the Legislature. That may be changing, The Auditor has learned. State Sens. Loretta Weinberg (D-Bergen) and Ray Lesniak (D-Union) — sponsors of the original failed legislation — will meet Friday in New York with Alphonso David, New York State’s deputy secretary for civil rights. Garden State Equality Chairman Steven Goldstein also is expected to be there.
