Nevada dropped its defense of a state ban on gay marriage on Monday, saying that the legal landscape had changed and its arguments in support of a voter-approved ban on same-sex nuptials were no longer sustainable.

State Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto said that after careful review, the state had filed a motion to withdraw a brief in support of the ban in a case pending before the US Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit.
