Judge strikes down Idaho's same-sex marriage ban

Published: 05.14.14, 20:58 / Israel News

Gay and lesbian couples in Idaho could start getting married as soon as Friday after a judge ruled the western state's ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional.

 

US District Magistrate Judge Candy Dale wrote in her decision Tuesday evening that Idaho's laws barring same-sex marriage unconstitutionally deny gay and lesbian citizens their fundamental right to marry. Ten other federal district courts have issued similar rulings supporting gay marriage rights, many in conservative states.

 

Dale said the state must issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples starting at 9 am Friday. (AP)
