Tennessee Ordered to Recognize Out-of-State Gay Marriages

Tennessee must temporarily recognize three couples’ out-of-state gay marriages while they pursue a lawsuit seeking to overturn the state’s ban on acknowledging such unions.

In granting the couples’ request, U.S. District Judge Aleta A. Trauger in Nashville, Tennessee, emphasized she wasn’t making a final judgment on whether the legal challenge has merit.
