WASHINGTON DC — The Supreme Court has refused to hear an appeal from a Marion County judge who was suspended after allegations that he had refused to marry gay couples and had broken gun laws.

The justices on Tuesday left in place the three-year suspension against Judge Vance Day, who had argued that he was singled out for his opposition to same-sex marriage.

The Oregon Supreme Court imposed the suspension in March after determining that Day had lied to ethics investigators.

Day also is accused of allowing a felon to handle a gun and is facing criminal charges. The trial is scheduled to begin on Oct. 22.
