A county in Oregon has stopped giving out all marriage licenses until the state decides who can and who cannot wed.
The commissioner of Benton County told Reuters, “It may seem odd. We need to treat everyone in our county equally.”
Meanwhile the American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit Wednesday against the state of Oregon for failing to register more than 2,500 marriage licenses that have been issued in and around Portland since March 3. Multnomah County is now the only jurisdiction in the country that is still issuing same-sex marriage licenses.
