NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A federal judge’s ruling on Friday that Tennessee must recognize the marriages of three same-sex couples is drawing both praise and condemnation.
Nashville based U.S. District Judge Aleta Trauger issued a preliminary injunction barring Tennessee from enforcing state laws that prohibit recognition of the marriages. The couples were legally married in other states and filed suit to force Tennessee to recognize their unions.
