A trial court judge in New York City has dismissed a lawsuit brought in by anti-same-sex marriage activists and state legislators that said that New York Governor David Paterson (left) unlawfully ordered state agencies to recognize same-sex marriages that were legally performed elsewhere. The judge says that Gov. Paterson was acting within the state's law on marriage recognition since the law generally recognizes marriages from other jurisdictions and makes no mention of same-sex marriages specifically. Good for New York! Now, if we could only get same-sex marriages legalized in the state. [UPI]
