Kansas Supreme Court Clears The Way For Same-Sex Marriage

The Kansas state Supreme Court on Tuesday evening lifted its hold on marriage licenses to same-sex couples in Johnson County.

The justices last month blocked such licenses while reviewing a petition from Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt.

As I reported earlier today, only a handful of county clerks were issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples while the majority waited on “further guidance” from the state Supreme Court.

Hopefully, this is the “guidance” those clerks need 🙂

UPDATE: Even after the state court issued it’s ruling, some counties are still not issuing licenses.

Equality Kansas has listed the 19 counties currently allowing gay and lesbian couples to marry on their Facebook page.
