The Pacific Daily News reported that U.S. District Judge Frances Tydingco-Gatewood’s ruling will take effect on Monday at 8 a.m. local time (6 p.m. EST on Sunday.)
Kathleen Aguero and Loretta Pangelinan filed a lawsuit against the marriage ban in April after the Guam Department of Public Health and Social Services denied them a license that would allow them to tie the knot in the U.S. territory.
The Pacific Daily News reported that Aguero and Pangelinan plan to apply for a marriage license on Monday.
“Today’s ruling is a resounding victory for our clients and vindication for their right to equal treatment under the law,” said Mitch Thompson, one of the lawyers representing Aguero and Pangelinan, in a press release that Lambda Legal issued after Tydingco-Gatewood issued her ruling.
Same-sex couples are currently able to legally tie the knot in 37 states and D.C.
Guam will become the first U.S. territory to extend marriage rights to same-sex couples.
The U.S. Supreme Court later this month will issue its ruling in four cases from Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee in which same-sex couples are seeking marriage rights.
