Federal Judge To Rule On Colorado Gay Marriage Ban
" DENVER (AP) — A federal judge in Denver is expected to rule Wednesday whether Colorado’s same-sex marriage ban should be overturned immediately, or if the issue should be decided by the U.S. Supreme Court.

U.S. District Judge Raymond P. Moore’s decision will be in response to a lawsuit by six gay couples who want an injunction declaring Colorado’s ban unconstitutional.

Colorado Attorney General John Suthers, a Republican, is not opposing the injunction, but he wants it to be stayed until the nation’s highest court decides the issue. However, Mari Newman, the attorney for the gay couples, told the judge on Tuesday that “justice delayed is justice denied.”

During arguments before the court, Newman compared opponents of gay marriage to former Alabama Gov. George C. Wallace, who tried to prevent the integration of black students at the University of Alabama in 1963.
