A federal judge on Tuesday struck down Pennsylvania's ban on same-sex marriage, joining a host of other federal and state courts that have done so since the Supreme Court last year ruled against the federal Defense of Marriage Act.
"We now join the twelve federal district courts across the country which, when confronted with these inequities in their own states, have concluded that all couples deserve equal dignity in the realm of civil marriage," U.S. District Court Judge John E. Jones III said.
The ruling comes one day after a judge declared Oregon's ban on gay marriage unconstitutional.- -
