Kansas AG Defends Gay Marriage Ban in Court

ks-ag seal sized

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Attorney General Derek Schmidt is urging the Kansas Supreme Court to preserve the state's gay-marriage ban ahead of a U.S. Supreme Court decision on the policy. Schmidt was waiting Wednesday for a decision from the nation's highest court on gay marriage in Kansas. Justice Sonia Sotomayor this week put on hold a federal judge's injunction barring the state from enforcing its ban. Schmidt also is fighting for the ban in a separate case before the Kansas Supreme Court. The attorney general filed that case last month after a state judge in Johnson County authorized marriage licenses for same-sex couples. The Kansas Supreme Court blocked such licenses, but the judge asked it to reconsider. Schmidt replied Monday that the Kansas court should wait for the U.S. Supreme Court's decision.
