PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A second Oregon judge says he is no longer performing weddings after a federal judge overturned the state’s ban on same-sex marriage last year.

The Oregonian reports (https://bit.ly/1VPh4EW ) that Washington County Judge Thomas Kohl says he stopped performing weddings as a judge last summer for faith-based reasons.

U.S. District Judge Michael McShane overturned the ban in May 2014.

Last week Marion County Circuit Judge Vance Day publicly acknowledged that he stopped performing weddings due to religious beliefs on gay marriage. Day is facing an ethics investigation due to that decision.

There is no known complaint or investigation regarding Kohl.
