The American Bar Association's governing body Tuesday voted in favor of supporting same-sex marriage at the urging of 14 groups. The measure calls for the elimination of state, territorial and tribal laws restricting marriage between same-sex partners. The ABA House of Delegates voted "overwhelmingly" in favor of the resolution at its annual meeting in San Francisco, said Stephen P. Younger, president of the New York State Bar Association. "It's really a historic moment for the ABA," said Younger.
