                                                                                                                                              FRIDAY, JUNE 26, 2015

HARTFORD-Attorney General George Jepsen today issued the following statement on today’s Supreme Court decision regarding Obergefell v. Hodges:

"I am delighted by the Supreme Court's ruling upholding a nationwide, constitutional right to marriage equality.    I applaud the Court for guaranteeing equality for same sex couples previously denied the right to marry.   This decision is also an important vindication for  couples in Connecticut whose marriages were previously denied recognition and respect in all states.   Indeed, every American benefits by today's reaffirmation and extension of our national commitment to equality and human dignity – principles at the very heart of our constitutional system of government."
