Georgia Judge’s Ruling Striking Down Voter-Approved Ban on Gay Marriage to be Appealed

A Georgia Superior Court judge ruled Tuesday that the state’s constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage violated the single subject rules for ballot questions.  The amendment had been approved by 76 percent of the state’s voters in November, 2004.  Governor Sonny Perdue said Wednesday that he will call for a special election to propose another constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage if the appeal being brought by the state was not decided before August 14 by the state Supreme Court.  Source.  CNN.com.
