PA Ruling makes it 14 in a row since Windsor

This afternoon US District Court Judge John E. Jones III, an appointee of George W. Bush, struck down Pennsylvania's ban on same-sex marriage. Judge Jones ruled that the ban was unconstitutional.

This is the 14th similar decision, in a row, to nullify state marriage bans since the United States Supreme Court ruled that Section 3 of DOMA was unconstitutional in United States v. Windsor.

Earlier in the day the ACLU issued a press release that reads, in part, “After Judge Jones issues his decision in Whitewood, we will be hosting Decision Day rallies all across the state where we hope to celebrate a favorable ruling for the freedom to marry!”
