Kansas Supreme Court to Deliberate on Gay Marriage

Associated Press - November 14, 2014 7:15 pm

The Kansas Supreme Court says it will begin deliberating next week on whether to keep in place its order barring a Johnson County judge from issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

Written arguments in the case were due late Friday. No public hearings were scheduled. The court begins its deliberations on Monday.

The state of Kansas filed a petition in October after Chief Judge Kevin Moriarty of Johnson County District Court directed that marriage licenses be issued to same-sex couples.

The state case has been overtaken by fast-moving developments in a separate federal lawsuit that has allowed gay couples in Kansas to get marriage licenses.

The U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday denied a request from Kansas to bar same-sex couples from marrying while the state fights the issue.
