South Dakota's voter-approved same-sex marriage ban is unconstitutional, a federal judge ruled Monday, making it the latest in a string of marriage bans to fall nationwide.
U.S. District Judge Karen Schreier stayed her ruling until the appeals process plays out, but she found South Dakota had wrongly deprived six same-sex couples of their rights. The couples had sought to marry within the state or have their marriages from other states recognized at home."Plaintiffs have a fundamental right to marry," Schreier wrote in a 28-page ruling. "South Dakota law deprives them of that right solely because they are same-sex couples and without sufficient justification."
