Utah Same-Sex Couples Getting Marriage Licenses

Utah state constitution amendment ruled unconstitutional.
U.S. District Judge Robert J. Shelby issued a 53-page ruling saying the constitutional amendment Utah voters approved in 2004 violates gay and lesbian couples' rights to due process and equal protection under the 14th Amendment. Shelby said the state failed to show that allowing same-sex marriages would affect opposite-sex marriages in any way.
This is huge!  All other DOMA-style amendments and laws across the nation are toast.
