Dallas judge’s ruling saying gay couple could divorce in Texas rejected on appeal

A state appeals court in Dallas has rejected a lower court’s decision that two gay men who married in Massachusetts had the right to divorce in Texas.

In October, state District Judge Tena Callahan ruled that the men could legally end their marriage and that the state’s prohibition against same-sex marriage violated the federal constitutional right to equal protection.

On Tuesday, the 5th District Court of Appeals in Dallas reversed that decision and instructed Callahan to dismiss the case.
