The next step for same-sex marriage in Kentucky

In Judge Heyburn’s ruling of February 12, 2014, he orders Kentucky to now recognize same-sex marriages that have been performed outside of Kentucky.

The next step would obviously be to file suit to allow same-sex marriage to be performed in the State of Kentucky. The attorneys of the Fauver Law Office and Clay Daniel Walton and Adams, have taken that next step. On February 14, 2014, they filed a motion to allow them to add Plaintiffs to the Bourke vs. Beshear case. They asked to join those Plaintiffs to the case in order for them to be allowed to be married in their home state of Kentucky.

As of today, we are waiting for a ruling on whether or not the two couples who wish to be married in Kentucky can join the lawsuit with the four couples that are already married outside of Kentucky.
