Gay Marriage Licenses Coming to Oregon

I was wondering when this was going to happen. This could be the most significant challenge to the ill/legality of same-sex marriages so far outside Massachusetts because Oregon does not have a mini-DoMA like California, Oregon's domestic relations law is almost genderless (although not totally), and state law bans discrimination based on sexual orientation. If Oregon had California's courts this would be a done deal, but I suspect without legislative action same-sex marriages will be upheld.
