Recent Court Rulings against Same-sex Marriage

In 2003 in Standhardt v. Superior Court, the Arizona Court of appeals upheld a statute that prohibited same-sex couples from marrying. The court ruled that the statute was constitutional based on due process, equal protection, and rights of privacy provided in the Arizona constitution. The Indiana Court of Appeals made a similar ruling in January 2005 in Morrison v. Sadler. Numerous other states have right-to-marry cases winding their way through the court system.
