A federal judge has ruled that Alaska's same-sex marriage ban is unconstitutional, Alaska Dispatch News reports:
Judge Timothy Burgess wrote in a summary judgment that Alaska's "refusal to recognize same-sex marriages lawfully entered in other states is unconstitutional as a deprivation of basic due process and equal protection principles under the Fourteenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution."
The lawsuit was filed in Anchorage in May.
The ruling takes effect immediately.
