Joy, dismay as 2 sides assess gay-marriage ruling

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 11/07/2014 - 16:13

FILE - In this Jan. 28, 2014 file photo, Brian Brown, president of the National Organization for Marriage, speaks during a rally for the opponents of gay marriage at the Utah State Capitol in Salt Lake City. The 2-1 ruling Thursday Nov. 6, 2014 by the Cincinnati-based 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals _ affecting laws in Ohio, Michigan, Kentucky and Tennessee _ ran counter to a wave of recent federal court rulings striking down state bans on same-sex marriage and boosting the number of states that allow it to 32. Brown welcomed the new possibility that a split in appeals court rulings would oblige the Supreme Court to take up the issue, which it sidestepped last month. (AP Photo/Rick Bowmer, File)One side was euphoric, the other dismayed, but both foes and supporters of same-sex marriage swiftly turned their attention to the U.S. Supreme Court after an against-the-grain appeals court ruling upheld bans or restrictions on gay marriage in four states.
