A federal appeals court judge from San Francisco has ruled that Oregon’s ban on same sex marriage and the federal defense of marriage act are unconstitutional, but the decision won't overturn either law.  Jeff Manning, in the Oregon Attorney General's Office, says this wasn't a lawsuit; it was decided by a judge, because it was a federal personnel matter.  It was the decision of one judge and not the entire panel.  Alison "Tex" Clark challenged a decision by the federal government that denied her spouse benefits coverage.  They were married in British Columbia, but the federal government didn't recognize the marriage as legal.
