Az. Supreme Court lets stand gay marriage ban
Associated Press

The Arizona Supreme Court on Tuesday let stand a lower court's ruling that upheld as constitutional the state's ban on same-sex marriages.

The Supreme Court, without comment, turned away a Phoenix gay couple's appeal that argued that the state's ban on same-sex marriages unconstitutionally discriminates against gay couples and their children.

Don Standhardt and Tod Keltner on Dec. 8 asked the Supreme Court to review the Court of Appeals decision that upheld Arizona's 1996 state law prohibiting same-sex marriages.

The couple's appeal argued that the justices should hear the case because barring gay couples from civil marriage discriminates against the couples and their children in violation of state constitutional rights of privacy and equal treatment under the law
