SAN FRANCISCO – Attorney General Kamala D. Harris today issued the following statement on the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to deny review in all five pending same sex marriage cases:

“Today’s decision by the U.S. Supreme Court is a significant victory in the fight for marriage equality. Those circuit courts that are still considering this issue should swiftly join those that have already ruled in favor of equality. There are many gay and lesbian couples across the country who are still waiting to realize their full civil rights, and I urge the courts to move quickly to ensure that every American has the right to marry the person they love.”
