Federal judges in Mississippi and Arkansas on Tuesday overturned those states’ laws defining marriage as between one man and one woman. Both judges put their rulings on hold pending appeal.
Referendums held in 2004 in both states approved adding the traditional definition of marriage to the states’ constitutions. But Judge Kristine Baker in Arkansas said the law there was discriminatory.
