Judge Allows Immediate Start To Same-Sex Marriage In Cook County

Same-sex marriage may be coming to at least part of Illinois sooner than expected. 


Ruling in a lawsuit brought by gay couples in Cook County, a federal judge has ruled that there is no reason those couples should have to wait until June to be able to be legally wed.  Illinois passed a same-sex marriage law last year that doesn’t take effect until June 1, but the judge hearing the challenge said same-sex couples have already suffered from the denial of their right to marry and shouldn’t have to wait any longer. 


The ruling appears to apply only to Cook County, but the lawyer for the plaintiffs hopes other county clerks around the state will act on their own to start issuing marriage licenses to gay couples.  Cook County Clerk David Orr says he will immediately begin issuing licenses to same-sex couples.
