Iowa Judge Strikes Down Gay Marriage Ban

And same-sex couples are lining up:

A Polk County judge has struck down Iowa’s law that bans gay marriage. Judge Robert B. Hanson ruled that couples cannot be denied licenses to marry or marriage certificates or “in any other way be prevented from entering into civil marriage pursuant to Iowa Code Chapter 595 by reason of the fact that both persons comprising such as a couple are of the same sex.” Six gay and lesbian couples went to court for the right to legally marry in Iowa. The couples had tried to apply for marriage licenses, but were refused because of the state law.
