High Court rules against ACT same-sex marriage law
The High Court has released its decision on the fate of the ACT’s recently enacted Same-Sex Marriage Act and found in favour of the Commonwealth.
The court has ruled against the ACT, and thrown out the law as inconsistent with the Federal Marriage Act.
The 27 couples who wed since the law was enacted on Saturday December 7, will now have their marriages annulled.
The High Court will deliver its full judgement later today.
