Same-sex marriage

Attorney Ellis Rubin speaks to reporters with his clients, the Rev. Nancy Wilson, centre, and Dr. Paula Schoenwether, from Bradenton, Fla., on the steps of the Federal Courthouse in Tampa, Fla. Ellis filed a federal lawsuit on behalf of the lesbian couple, who believe their legal marriage in Massachusetts should be recognized in Florida and other states. In what is believed to be the first ruling of its kind, a judge Wednesday upheld the federal law letting states ban same-sex marriages, dismissing a lawsuit by two women seeking to have their Massachusetts marriage recognized here.
