Courts - "Outside lawyer to appeal Kentucky gay-marriage ruling after attorney general refuses"

Updating this ILB post from a few minutes ago, Tom Loftus of the LCJ is now reporting that:

Gov. Steve Beshear announced Tuesday morning that the state will hire outside counsel to appeal a judicial ruling that the state must recognize same-sex marriages legally performed outside the state.

The announcement followed state Attorney General Jack Conway’s emotional announcement that he would not appeal U.S. District Judge John G. Heyburn II’s ruling and would not pursue any more stays.
