Tennessee must recognize the marriage of three couples

A federal judge has ordered the state of Tennessee to recognize the marriages of three same-sex couples while their marriage equality lawsuit goes through the court system.

Buzzfeed broke the news:

In considering the request for a preliminary injunction, U.S. District Court Judge Aleta Trauger wrote that “all relevant federal authority indicates that the plaintiffs in this case are indeed likely to prevail on their claims that the Anti-Recognition Laws are unconstitutional.”

The plaintiffs, she noted, filed the case only on their own behalf, so the temporary ruling affects only the state’s treatment of the three couples.
