A federal judge is fast-tracking Illinois' gay marriage law. ABC News reports same sex marriage was passed in Illinois in December, and is supposed to go in effect in June of this year. But, US District Judge Sharon Johnson Coleman, ruling on the lawsuit, says there's no reason to delay the law any further because there has been no opposition presented to the court. This ruling appears to only impact marriages in Cook County...which Chicago is in. Cook County Clerk David Orr says his office will begin issuing same sex marriage licenses immediately. He's even keeping his office open an extra two hours Friday to accommodate couples who want to get a license after work.
