Gay Marriage Licenses Allowed In Kansas County

KSAL StaffOctober 8, 2014

A judge in a northeast Kansas county has ordered it to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples following actions earlier this week by the U.S. Supreme Court.

Johnson County Chief District Judge Kevin Moriarty issued the order Wednesday, saying the order was meant to avoid confusion about the legal climate surrounding same-sex marriages.

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday refused to hear appeals from five states seeking to preserve their bans on gay marriage. One of them was Utah, which is in the same federal appeals court circuit as Kansas.

The Kansas Constitution has banned gay marriage since 2005.
