PIERRE, South Dakota — Officials with the South Dakota Retirement System say they're holding off on discussing the effects of last year's Supreme Court decision on same-sex marriage.

Rob Wylie is the executive director of the retirement system's board of trustees. Wylie says for now the board won't discuss the potential effects of last year's Supreme Court decision that struck down part of the federal Defense of Marriage Act.

Wylie says it could be premature to discuss the matter while there are court cases pending on South Dakota's ban on same-sex marriage.

The system's board of trustees is meeting Thursday in Pierre for its quarterly meeting.
