BuzzFeed reported that no government officials plan to appeal that ruling by U.S. district judge Michael McShane. The National Organization for Marriage, which opposes same-sex marriage, had attempted to intervene in the case, but was denied by McShane.

McShane's ruling is the 12th federal court decision to overturn a state's same-sex marriage ban since the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the federal Defense of Marriage Act in 2013, according to BuzzFeed.
