Target expresses support of same-sex marriage, signs amicus brief

MINNEAPOLIS — Target has signed on to an amicus brief in support of marriage equality, the retailer revealed this week on its company blog.

“As our leadership team discussed signing on, we took time to consider the bigger questions at hand. This brief is important, as the issues it addresses have significant impact on businesses. But it is more than that and we agreed that now is the right time to more directly share our views on this issue,” stated Jodee Kozlak, EVP and chief human resources officer. “It is our belief that everyone should be treated equally under the law, and that includes rights we believe individuals should have related to marriage”

The brief is currently pending in the Seventh Circuit.
