Judge Strikes Down Gay Marriage Ban in Oregon

"Oregon's ban on same-sex marriages was struck down Monday by U.S. District Judge Michael McShane, who ruled that the prohibition violated the federal constitutional rights of gays and lesbians," the Oregonian reports.

"Jubilant couples who anticipated a favorable decision from the judge began the rush to officially wed at locations around the state... Oregon becomes the seventh state where a federal judge has struck down a gay marriage ban since the U.S. Supreme Court last year invalidated key sections of the federal Defense of Marriage Act."
