NM Attorney General: Out-of-state marriages of same-sex couples will likely be valid in NM

Associated Press story posted on newswest9.com:

"Attorney General Gary King says out-of-state marriages of same-sex couples will likely be valid in New Mexico.

"King reached that conclusion in a nonbinding legal opinion issued Tuesday, but cautioned there's no way to predict how New Mexico courts would rule on the marriage equality question.

"The Democratic attorney general said 40 states prohibit the recognition of marriages of same-sex couples, but not New Mexico.

"He said there's a legal doctrine in New Mexico that considers an out-of-state marriage valid unless it's contrary to a strong public policy."
