Federal Judge Michael McShane just released his decision Monday.  

 

He also allowed same sex marriages to take effect immediately.

 

Lavonna Skye of Bend has been with her partner for 35  years and is originally from the San Francisco Bay area.

 

She has seen a dramatic change in attitudes over those years.

 

"When I look back over the last 35 years, in some ways I'm more disappointed that I haven't seem more change.  But I'm gratified that I have nieces and nephews and younger people that don't even consider the rights of gay people a legitimate question.  They're like -- what?  Well, of course!"

 

Oregon becomes the 7th state where a federal judge has struck down a gay marriage ban in the last year.

 

THe 9th Circuit Court of Appeals rejected an attempt by the National Organization for Marriage to stop McShane's ruling from being implemented.
