NY court denies marriage to Gays

From Reuters:

New York court declines to recognize gay marriage

NEW YORK - The New York State Court of Appeals refused to recognize same-sex marriage in a ruling issued on Thursday, saying the issue was a question for the Legislature to decide.

The New York case involved 44 gay and lesbian couples who filed four separate cases seeking to overturn as unconstitutional a 97-year-old state law that defines marriage as between a man and woman.
