U.S. District Judge Michael McShane ruled on May 19 that Oregon’s same-sex marriage ban approved by voters in 2004 is unconstitutional. "I believe that if we can look for a moment past gender and sexuality, we can see in these plaintiffs nothing more or less than our own families, families who we would expect our Constitution to protect, if not exalt, in equal measure," McShane said.
