Same-Sex Marriage Bans Struck Down In Utah And Indiana

By KMVT News

Utah (CNN) A court decision in Utah Wednesday paves the way for a possible Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage.

A U.S. federal appeals court struck down Utah’s ban on same-sex marriage.

In a two to one ruling, the court said the 14th Amendment protects the right to marry... and a state cannot deny couples that right based on sex.

Utah officials could ask the full appeals court to review the decision or proceed directly to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Separately, a federal judge struck down Indiana’s same-sex marriage ban as unconstitutional.

The next step in that case could be to an appeals panel.
