Appeals Court Sides With Gay Married Couples In Utah

(Denver, CO) -- Utah will have to recognize 13-hundred same-sex marriages that were performed while the state's ban on gay marriage was lifted. The ruling by a federal appeals court means that married couples may be able to apply for spousal benefits in ten days. The 10th Circuit Court of Appeals Friday denied the state's request for a permanent hold on marital benefits while it appeals the ruling striking down Utah's ban on same-sex marriage. The court gave the state until July 21st to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court on it's ruling. If the high court doesn't act on a permanent stay, then same-sex couples will be able to apply for in-state benefits available to all married couples.
