A Cook County judge is expected to make a ruling today, on whether a same sex marriage ban in Illinois is constitutional.

A lawsuit seeking to legalize same sex marriage got opposition from five downstate county clerks.

Twenty-five gay couples initiated the case because they want the legal right to marry.  Cook County’s top prosecutor and the Illinois Attorney General say the ban violates the state constitution.

Civil unions were legalized in the state two years ago.
