Judge: Colorado gay marriage ban unconstitutional

DENVER (AP) — A judge in Colorado has struck down the state's gay marriage ban. District Court Judge C. Scott Crabtree on Wednesday ruled the 2006 voter-approved ban violates the state and federal constitutions. He immediately put his ruling on hold pending an appeal. Crabtree is the 16th judge to void a state's gay marriage ban since the U.S. Supreme Court ruled last year that the federal government has to recognize gay marriages in the states.
