Statement by Georgia Attorney General Sam Olens on Supreme Court Marriage Ruling

Attorney General Sam Olens today released the following statement on the Supreme Court’s ruling in the case of Obergefell v. Hodges:

“Today the Supreme Court of the United States ruled the Constitution requires a state to license a marriage between two people of the same sex and to recognize a marriage between two people of the same sex when their marriage was lawfully licensed and performed out of state.  It does not permit bans on same-sex marriage. In our system of government, the Supreme Court bears the ultimate responsibility for determining the constitutionality of our laws. Once the Supreme Court has ruled, its Order is the law of the land. As such, Georgia will follow the law and adhere to the ruling of the Court.”
