DC Judge Rules against Same Sex Marriage Initiative

Courthouse News Service

(CN) - A judge in Washington, D.C., has rejected same-sex marriage opponents' bid to place an initiative on the ballot that would define marriage as a commitment between a man and a woman.
D.C. Superior Court Judge Judith Macaluso ruled that the proposed ballot initiative violates D.C.'s Human Rights Act, which bars discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity.
