Courts - "Same-sex marriage developments: Utah and Oregon "
A few days ago the ILB tweeted that it had given up trying to keep on track of all the same sex marriage rulings in the western and southern (Arkansas) states. This morning Lyle Denniston of SCOTUSblog precedes his latest post with:
UPDATED 7:28 p.m. The very rapid pace of developments on same-sex marriage continued Monday. In Utah, a federal judge ruled that the state must recognize the marriages of some 1,300 same-sex couples who were wed in a seventeen-day period of opportunity between a federal judge’s decision against the state ban and the Supreme Court’s temporary order blocking that ruling. The decision by Senior U.S. District Judge Dale A. Kimball is here. That decision will be on hold for twenty-one days to allow the state to appeal. In Oregon, a federal judge nullified that state’s ban. The Oregon decision is discussed in full in the post below.
