Kansas Supreme Court to Deliberate on Gay Marriage

KSAL StaffNovember 14, 2014

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.
