Federal judge strikes Idaho's nasty, discriminatory pockmark (i.e. marriage ban)

by Jeremy Hooper

201405132009Breaking tonight:

Today U.S. Magistrate Judge Candy Dale, a federal judge in Idaho, ruled in favor of the freedom to marry, striking down the state’s discriminatory constitutional amendment that bans same-sex couples from marriage. The ruling is the 16th consecutive victory in state and federal court for the freedom to marry since the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling in Windsor v. United States in June 2013. The ruling is the 12th win in federal court for marriage since June.
