Marriage Equality Comes To Wyoming

Wyoming's attorney general filed notice on Tuesday morning that he will not appeal last week's decision that the state cannot bar same-sex couples from marrying. Wyoming becomes the 32nd state, plus Washington, D.C., with marriage equality.

As Wyoming Attorney General Peter Michael announced on Monday, the state filed its notice on Tuesday morning a little before 10 a.m. MT that it would not be appealing last week's ruling that same-sex couples could not be barred from marriage:

The filing followed statements from Wyoming Gov. Matt Mead last week, both before and after U.S. District Court Judge Scott Skvdahl issued his ruling, that the state would not appeal a ruling against the state's ban.

After the state's filing, minutes later, Skavdahl issued an order ending his temporary stay of Friday's decision, formally bringing marriage equality to Wyoming:

Then, couples began applying:
