New Mexico Same-Sex Marriages To Begin TodayAs Judge Lifts Unconstitutional Ban

New Mexico district court judge in Albuquerque has ruled a ban on same-sex marriage is “unconstitutional and unenforceable” and has removed it from the counties in which he has the authority to do so. Second district court judge Alan Malott ordered Bernalillo County and Santa Fe County clerks to begin issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples “without regard to the couples’ sexual orientation or gender.” Bernalillo County is the state’s most populous county.
