Washington State Judge Refuses to Marry Same Sex Couples
A Washington state judge has refused to marry gay and lesbian couples. Couples began marrying on December 9 following the November 6 passage of Referendum 74, which upheld a gay marriage law approved by lawmakers. (County clerks began issuing marriage licenses on December 6. However, the state imposes a 3-day waiting period.)

According to Seattle Gay News (SGN), Thurston County Superior Court Judge Gary Tabor has notified court personnel that he will not officiate over the weddings of gay couples.

SGN reported that Tabor said that he would "not be comfortable" marrying gay couples during a December 5 meeting of judges and administrative staff.
