The 10th Circuit Court of Appeals has just struck down Utah’s gay marriage ban. That’s the first federal appeals court to do so. A huge development.

The news came just moments after a federal judge separately struck down Indiana’s gay marriage ban.

Note that there’s a separate case before the 10th Circuit on Oklahoma’s gay marriage ban. Today’s decision suggests Oklahoma’s ban may be tossed soon as well. The Utah case was argued before the court in April, just a week before the Oklahoma case came up for arguments.
