LAS VEGAS — A federal appeals court has again declared that same-sex couples can get married in Nevada.
The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said Thursday that its ruling striking down Nevada’s gay marriage ban is “in full force and effect.”
The appeals court ordered a trial court judge in Las Vegas to adopt its ruling as soon as possible.
Officials in Las Vegas and surrounding Clark County said they would begin issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples one hour after the trial judge acts.
It was unclear, however, when that might happen.
