Oregon Supreme Court Nullifies Gay Marriages

Just on the wire, I'll post the story when up.

Update: SALEM, Ore. (AP) -- The Oregon Supreme Court on Thursday nullified nearly 3,000 marriage licenses issued to same-sex couples by Multnomah County a year ago.

The court said while the county can question the constitutionality of laws governing marriage, they are a matter of statewide concern so the county had no authority to issue licenses to gay couples.

I don't know about you all, but for me, this is a surprise.
