Gay Marriage Ban Struck Down In Idaho
A federal appeals court has struck down gay marriage bans in Idaho and Nevada.
The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco did not decide on a similar case in Hawaii, which legalized gay marriage in December.
State and federal court judges have been striking down bans since the landmark U.S. Supreme Court ruling.
The 9th Circuit ruling comes a day after the Supreme Court effectively legalized gay marriage in 11 more states, for a total of 30.
The appeals court ruled that gay couples' equal protection rights were violated by the bans.
