Anti-Gay Marriage Law.....Wins in Court.

[Q]SALEM, Ore. -- Oregon's voter-approved ban on gay marriage was upheld Friday by a judge who turned aside arguments from gay-rights supporters that the measure is flawed and should not have been put to a statewide vote.

The state's largest gay-rights organization said later it would appeal the ruling while continuing its political fight in the Legislature to gain more rights and benefits for gay couples.

But the group that sponsored the gay marriage ban said the ruling honored the will of the voters and protected Oregonians' right to enact constitutional changes via the ballot.

I believe it was a district court judge. They're generally afraid of declaring anything unconstitutional, but are, legally, the first visit for any court case.
