Some Kansas Judges Issuing Gay Couples Licenses

KSAL StaffNovember 13, 2014

Judges in at least four Kansas counties were issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples a day after the U.S. Supreme Court issued a ruling allowing them to wed.

Clerks in other counties were giving applications to gay couples but requiring them to abide by the state’s three-day waiting period before they can get a license.

As of midmorning Thursday, Douglas County District Judge Robert Fairchild had waived the waiting period for three couples and said he would consider similar requests on a case-by-case basis. A different judge had agreed to preside over the wedding of one of the couples after the courthouse closes at 5 p.m. CST.

Two couples received licenses in Sedgwick County, while judges in Cowley and Riley counties each had issued one marriage license to same-sex couples.
