Lane County, Ore., Holds Back on Issuing Gay Marriage Licenses

By Randi Bjornstad, The Register-Guard, Eugene, Ore. Knight Ridder/Tribune Business News
Mar. 18 - If Lane County commissioners follow an opinion issued Wednesday by their chief attorney, the county will not follow the lead of Multnomah and Benton counties and begin issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
County Counsel Teresa Wilson concluded that until a "clear judicial ruling" has been made on the issue -- presumably by the state Supreme Court -- Lane County should not defy state law that appears to restrict marriage to heterosexual couples.
