• US judge strikes down Oregon gay wedding ban

    1

    LOS ANGELES: A federal judge on Monday struck down a ban on same-sex marriages in Oregon, making the western US state the latest to allow gay weddings.

    Gay rights activists welcomed the ruling by US District Judge Michael McShane on a case brought by a group of gay and lesbian couples who argued that Oregon’s laws violate the US constitution.

    “LOVE WINS! .. Effective immediately!!!!” tweeted the Oregon branch of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).

    The Oregon decision came less than a week after a judge in neighboring Idaho also ruled the ban there was unconstitutional.

    Judges in Arkansas, Kentucky, Michigan, New Mexico, Ohio, Oklahoma, Texas, Utah and Virginia have recently ruled in favor of gay marriage.

    The surge of legal rulings follow a landmark Supreme Court decision in June last year finding that couples in same-sex marriages were entitled to the same benefits and protections as their heterosexual counterparts.

    Marriage laws are governed by individual US states, more than 30 of which still ban same-sex weddings.
