Same Sex Marriage And The Courts

Email Email Print

From the AP:

Michael Adams and his partner, Fred Davie, waited three years to find out whether their marriage in Massachusetts was legal.

On Wednesday, they got an answer.

A judge ruled that marriages of gay couples from New York who wed in Massachusetts before last July are valid because New York had not explicitly banned same-sex marriages until then.

I cannot find any link to a text of an opinion, and there might not even be one –or an appeal from the ruling.  But clearly those who argued that the federal Defense of Marriage Act would stop the export of same-sex marriage were wrong, and that basis for opposing the Marriage Amendment revealed as threadbare.
