  1. Federal Judge Rules Gay Marriage Can Continue in Utah

    A U.S. federal judge declined the state of Utah’s request to temporarily halt gay marriages while appeals move through the court system, ensuring that same-sex marriages will continue in the conservative state, at least for the near future. Earlier, Judge Robert J. Shelby ruled that Utah’s longstanding ban on gay marriage violated same-sex couples’ rights to due process and equal protection under the 14th Amendment. Hundreds of couples lined up across the state yesterday to the sound of wedding bells.
