On Oct. 15, 1971, the Minnesota Supreme Court rules that the state's prohibition of same-sex marriages is constitutional. The case -- the first of its kind in the United States -- involves two men, Richard J. Baker and James M. McConnell (below), who had requested a marriage license from the Hennepin County clerk of court. When the clerk denied them the license, Baker and McConnell sued, eventually taking the case to the state's highest court.
