Post to Twitter Post to Facebook

In a victory for same-sex marriage advocates, a New York Supreme Court (i.e., state lower court) judge has dismissed the lawsuit filed by lawmakers and opponents of same-sex marriage that challenged the power of NY Governor David Paterson to order the state’s executive agencies to recognize out-of-state same-sex marriages.

According to the NY Times story, the Alliance Defense Fund has indicated that it will appeal the decision.
