Breaking News: New York's top court blocks gay marriage

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — The state's top court says New York law doesn't allow gay marriage.

In a four-to-two decision, the Court of Appeals rejected arguments from gay and lesbian plaintiffs. They had argued that the inability to get marriage licenses in New York violated their constitutional rights.

In the ruling, a judge said New York's marriage law clearly limits the unions to a man and woman. He says any changes should come from the state Legislature.
