Koster will defend law as St. Louis challenges Missouri ban on gay marriages

Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster said Thursday that he personally supports gay marriage but will defend a state constitutional ban against it after St. Louis officials issued marriage licenses to four same-sex couples at a City Hall ceremony. A judge denied Koster’s request Thursday for a temporary restraining order, but city officials said they won’t issue any more marriage licenses to gay couples until state or federal courts further resolve challenges.
