Texas judge says state's gay-marriage ban is unconstitutional
A Texas judge ruled on 17 February that the state's ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional, in just the latest of numerous rulings striking down bans across the country. Travis County Probate Judge Guy Herman made the ruling as part of an estate dispute, in which a woman sought to have her eight-year relationship with her late partner accepted as common-law marriage, the Austin Statesman reports.
