Gay Couples Could Wed In Idaho As Soon As Friday

Posted: Updated:
BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Gay and lesbian couples in Idaho could start getting married as soon as Friday, after a judge ruled the state's ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional.
    
U.S. District Magistrate Judge Candy Dale wrote in her decision that Idaho's laws barring same-sex marriage unconstitutionally deny gay and lesbian citizens their fundamental right to marry.
    
Dale says the state must issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples starting at 9 a.m. Friday.
    
Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter already has said he intends to appeal the case, meaning an appellate court could still put the weddings on hold.
    
Dale says the ban wrongly stigmatizes gay and lesbian couples and relegates their families to second-class status.
