(Eugene, OR)  --  A ruling on Oregon's ban on gay marriage could be made in the next several months after a federal judge in Eugene consolidated two lawsuits challenging the ban.  U.S. District Judge Michael McShane consolidated suits filed by two different sets of same-sex couples, who are seeking the right to marry based on the last year's U.S. Supreme Court ruling that struck down provisions of the federal Defense of Marriage Act.  McShane has scheduled a hearing for April 23rd on whether he should issue a summary judgment in the case.  It involves whether the voter-approved 2004 ballot initiative banning same-sex marriage in Oregon is constitutional.
