LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- A federal judge in Louisville is weighing the fate of Kentucky's ban on same sex marriages as similar laws around the country have been overturned.
Two cases brought to force the state to recognize same sex marriages, have been fully briefed and submitted to U.S. District Judge John G. Heyburn II. Among the filings are decisions by federal judges in Oklahoma and Utah striking down laws in those states.
Heyburn isn't bound by decisions in other federal districts. Attorneys for the two couples suing, are hoping those rulings will come into play.
Judges in Oklahoma, New Mexico, Ohio, and Utah have all ruled in favor of same-sex marriage. Gay marriages in Utah have been put on hold, pending a decision from the Denver-based 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
