US: Miami judge overturns Florida’s same-sex marriage ban
A Miami judge has overturned Florida’s ban on same-sex marriage in a ruling that impacts Miami-Dade County.
The ruling, issued Friday by Circuit Judge Sarah Zabel, was immediately stayed by the judge to allow for appeals.
Both rulings found the same-sex marriage ban approved by voters in 2008 is in violation of the constitutional guarantee of equal protection under the law.
