A Federal Court In Oregon Does Not Allow NOM To Defend The Equal Marriage Ban

Written by 

National Organization For Marriage


A federal appeals court in Oregon rejected the request of the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) calling the right to appeal the judge's ruling that allowed the equal marriage in the state.

Following the repeal of the ban on marriage equality in Oregon, the Attorney General announced that he would not defend the ban. So NOM asked to replace the Attorney General to appeal the decision, but a judge ruled that the organization was not qualified for it.

This request was also rejected by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.
