June 10, 2004 – New York Court Backs Gay Marriage

“A New York court has ruled in favour of gay marriages saying that failure to do so would breach the equal rights laws written into the state’s constitution.

In its ruling the court in the town of New Paltz also dismissed the charges against local mayor Jason West who wed dozens of gay couples in February. It had been claimed that Mr West broke the law when he allowed the marriages.”
