In recent weeks, courts in Arkansas, Idaho, Pennsylvania, Oregon, and the District of Columbia have struck down same sex marriage prohibitions as unconstitutional. The lower court’s conclusions in Arkansas and Idaho have been appealed and are not yet final since there is chance of reversal by an appellate court. The most recent reversals, Pennsylvania, Oregon, and D.C. are now “final” and binding since the state governments did not seek an appeal to reverse the findings of unconstitutionality. There are reports that there are currently over 70 same sex marriage cases being litigated nationwide and 5 matters before federal appeals courts.
