Retired Justice Sandra Day O'Connor has officiated at the wedding of a gay couple at the¬†Supreme¬†Court, at least the second such ceremony at the¬†court¬†since its June decision that expanded federal recognition of same-sex¬†marriage.
Court¬†spokeswoman Kathy Arberg says O'Connor presided over the private ceremony Tuesday in the¬†court's lawyers' lounge for Jeffrey Trammell and Stuart Serkin of Washington.
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg officiated at a weekend ceremony at the¬†court¬†in which two New Yorkers, including a former Ginsburg student at Columbia Law School, were married. Ginsburg has officiated at three same-sex weddings.
In June, the¬†court¬†struck down part of a federal law that denied a range of federal benefits to gay couples who were married in states that allow same-sex unions.
