Ministers, Attorney Revel in Decision to Drop Charges

New Paltz, NY – On a day when U.S. Senate members prevented passage of a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage, two New York ministers celebrated a legal victory.

Meanwhile, their attorney had stern words for district attorney in the case. WAMC's Allison Dunne has this report.
