Bermuda Marriage Repeal Law Declared Unconstitutional

Bermuda Supreme Court Chief Justice Ian R. C. Kawaley on Wednesday ruled a law that rescinded marriage rights for same-sex couples in the British island territory is unconstitutional.

Kawaley issued his ruling five days after the Domestic Partnership Act took effect. The Royal Gazette newspaper is reporting gays and lesbians are once again able to marry in Bermuda.

The Washington Blade will update this story.
