Saratoga aircraft carrier is guided into Pier One of Coddington Cove in Middletown, R.I., by tugs after a five-day journey from the Philadelphia Naval Yard.

The decision by the three-judge panel of the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals is the latest in a series of rulings by judges in federal and state courts to find such exclusions violate the U.S. Constitution. The appellate court in Denver last month also upheld a decision that gay couples have a right to marry in Utah. Gay marriage is on hold in both Utah and Oklahoma while the appeals are being resolved.
