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.
