National Group Cannot Defend State Ban on Same Sex Marriage

 
National Group Cannot Defend State Ban on Same Sex Marriage
Posted Wednesday, May 14th 2014 @ 11am

A federal judge has ruled that a national group cannot defend Oregon's ban on same sex marriage.  The National Organization for Marriage stepped in because the state attorney general refused to defend the ban.  Judge Michael McShane denied the group's motion to intervene on Wednesday.

This decision paves the way for a ruling on the constitutionality of the state's ban, which could come at any time.  Voters approved the constitutional ban in 2004.
