Judge To Rule On Oregon Gay Marriage Ban Monday

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A federal judge says he’ll issue a decision next week on a constitutional challenge to Oregon’s same-sex marriage ban.

U.S. District Judge Michael McShane has notified attorneys that he’ll publish his decision at noon Monday.

Four gay and lesbian couples brought suit arguing Oregon’s marriage laws unconstitutionally discriminate against same-sex couples. Democratic Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum says the ban is legally indefensible and refused to offer arguments supporting it.

State officials have said same-sex marriages could begin almost immediately after a decision.
