Judge strikes down Colorado gay marriage ban, stays ruling

A state judge struck down Colorado’s gay marriage ban on Wednesday, saying the prohibition violated constitutional rights, but put his ruling on hold pending appeal. Adams County District Court Judge Scott Crabtree said in his decision that the ban, approved by voters in 2006, conflicted with the fundamental right to marry. Several other same-sex marriage lawsuits are moving toward the U.S. Supreme Court. The attorney general of neighboring Utah said on Wednesday he would appeal directly to the Supreme Court over a ruling by a federal appeals court last month that backed gay marriage in the conservative, heavily Mormon state.
