A federal judge ruled Wednesday that Kentucky must recognize the marriages of same-sex couples performed in other states, ruling part of the state’s ban on such marriages unconstitutional.

The decision, handed down by U.S. District Judge John G. Heyburn II, concludes that Kentucky’s ban on the recognition of same-sex couples’ marriages violates the U.S. Constitution’s guarantee of equal protection under the law.
