Bankruptcy Court Rules Against Gay-Marriage Ban

SAN FRANCISCO - The country's largest consumer bankruptcy court has sided with a gay couple seeking to file a joint bankruptcy petition, taking the extraordinary step of deciding the federal law prohibiting same-sex marriages is unconstitutional.

The Los Angeles-based federal court made the decision Monday in the case of Gene Balas and Carlos Morales, who wed during the 2008 window when same-sex marriage was briefly legal in California.
