Kansas Same-Sex Couples Wait On Supreme Court

KSAL StaffNovember 12, 2014

Kansas district court clerks’ offices aren’t seeing heightened activity ahead of a U.S. Supreme Court decision on whether gay marriage will be permitted in Kansas.

No one was in line for a marriage license application midday Wednesday at the court clerk’s office in the Shawnee County Courthouse in Topeka. There also was no such activity Wednesday morning at the Johnson County Courthouse in Olathe.

Equality Kansas Executive Director Tom Witt said couples are waiting on the U.S Supreme Court to decide whether the state can still enforce its gay-marriage ban.

After a federal judge last week told the state it couldn’t enforce the ban, Kansas appealed to U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor. She put the judge’s order on hold temporarily and allowed gay-rights advocates to respond.
