Another Lawless Judge Throws Out Constitutional Amendment Defending Marriage
The Associated Press reports
A federal judge on Monday struck down Oregon's voter-approved ban on gay marriage, saying it is unconstitutional.
U.S. District Judge Michael McShane said the ban unconstitutionally discriminates against same-sex couples and ordered the state not to enforce it. State officials earlier refused to defend the constitutional ban in court.
McShane joined judges in seven other states who have struck down gay marriage bans, though appeals are underway.
