Tennessee Takes A Win For Traditional Marriage
The Times Reports:
First such prohibition to withstand a constitutional challenge since June 2013
Tennessee's same-sex marriage ban has survived a constitutional challenge in court, the first prohibition to withstand such a challenge in almost 14 months.
Roane County Circuit Judge Russell Simmons ruled that "neither the Federal Government nor another state should be allowed to dictate to Tennessee what has traditionally been a state's responsibility," in ruling from last Tuesday, SCOTUSblog reports.
