Mississippi law prohibiting same-sex marriage unconstitutional


Sun Herald reports:

Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood said Wednesday that marriage licenses should be issued to same-sex couples everywhere in Mississippi after the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit lifted the stay of a preliminary injunction that was prohibiting same-sex marriages in the state.

“Mississippi’s law prohibiting same-sex marriages are now officially declared unconstitutional and unenforceable by the Federal Court,” Hood said.
