The marriages of three same-sex Tennessee couples who are suing the state have been invalidated, at least temporarily, by the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati. In March, U.S District Court Judge Aleta Trauger granted a temporary injunction, forcing the state to recognize the couples’ out-of-state marriages. On Friday, the 6th Circuit put the lower court’s order on hold because it says "the law in this area is so unsettled." The Memphis Daily News has the story.
