Gay-marriage foes win ruling
Petitioners are poised to seek signatures after Oregon justices approve the ballot title for a bid to ban same-sex marriage

Friday, May 14, 2004

The ballot title for an initiative to ban same-sex marriage was approved Thursday by the Oregon Supreme Court, meaning the authors might be able to start gathering signatures next week.

While that only leaves about six weeks until the July 2 deadline, supporters say that's enough time to collect the 100,840 valid signatures they need. They're trying to place the constitutional amendment on the statewide ballot in November.

But first, the court must allow five business days for opponents to request reconsideration. Charles F. Hinkle, the American Civil Liberties Union of Oregon attorney who filed the challenge, said the group has not discussed whether to ask the court to reconsider its ruling on the initiative's ballot title.
