LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Kentucky’s attorney general announced Tuesday that he won’t appeal an order to recognize same-sex marriages from other states and countries and he will allow a judge’s ruling take effect March 20.
Attorney General Jack Conway’s decision means same-sex couples in Kentucky who were married in other states will be allowed to pursue name changes, file joint tax returns with the state, and seek to have names added to birth certificates.
The Democrat said at a news conference that if he appealed, “I would be defending discrimination. That I will not do.”
LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear says the state will hire outside attorneys to appeal a judge’s decision granting legal recognition to same-sex couples married in other states and countries.
Beshear’s announcement on Tuesday came moments after Attorney General Jack Conway said he would not ask a higher court to review the decision.
Both are Democrats.
