WASHINGTON — Missouri must recognize the marriages of same-sex couples that were granted elsewhere, state Judge Dale Youngs ruled on Friday.
"[T]o the extent these laws prohibit plaintiffs' legally cntracted marriages from other states from being recognized here, they are wholly irrational, do not rest upon any reasonable basis, and are purely arbitrary," Youngs wrote.
The ruling followed a hearing in September on the case, which was brought by 10 same-sex couples represented by the ACLU.
"Missouri has finally recognized our couples' marriages as being no different from any other marriage," Tony Rothert, legal director of the ACLU of Missouri, said in a statement.
