Federal Court: SD Ban On Gay Marriage Unconstitutional


South Dakota’s gay marriage bans have been declared unconstitutional. Both state law and the state constitution outlaw same-sex marriage. But Federal Judge Karen Schreier has granted summary judgment to six couples who want their out-of-state same-sex marriages honored in their home state of South Dakota. Some of those plaintiffs held a news conference in Rapid City Monday afternoon, just hours after the decision was announced.

Rapid City freelancer Victoria L. Wicks has been producing news for SDPB since August 2007. She Retired from this position in March 2023.
