District Judge Rules Oklahoma's Ban on Same-Sex Marriage Unconstitutional

US Senior District Judge Terence Kern's ruling is stayed pending appeal, which means that marriage licenses will not start being issued right away, but...the dominoes, they are falling!

The two couples who were plaintiffs in this case, Mary Bishop and Sharon Baldwin, and Gay Phillips and Susan Barton, filed their case in November 2004. This ruling was a long time coming. Let us hope the inevitable appeal upholds Judge Kern's decision!
