Marion (Salem) Circuit Court Judge suspended for 3 years after refusal to marry gay couple…among other things…
A Marion Circuit Court Judge who refused to marry a gay couple, provided a handgun to a convicted felon and other allegations against him, has been suspended from his job for three years by the Oregon Supreme Court, a category of employment that does not continue his $124,000 salary.
Judge Vance Day told reporters after his 95% removal from the bench that he and his attorney will appeal the Oregon High Court’s ruling to the U.S. Supreme Court and hope they agree to hear it.
