Supreme Court denies motion to stay marriages for same-sex couples in Oregon

Posted on June 4, 2014

SCOTUS DeniedThe U.S. Supreme Court has weighed in, and moments ago, the nation’s highest court just served NOM a flat out rejection of their motion to issue a stay and halt marriages for same-sex couples in Oregon!

Today’s ruling means that nothing changes: love is still the law in Oregon—and married same-sex couples are afforded the respect and protections only marriage can provide.

NOM still has an appeal in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, but the likelihood that the D.C.-based organization could intervene in the case that led to last week’s landmark decision—the case that’s already been won—is slim. They are literally pulling at straws in order to deny the freedom to marry for all Oregonians

Marriage equality is here to stay in Oregon! And because of the incredible momentum you’ve helped build, NOM won’t take this victory away from us.
