But California’s Supreme Court has ruled against the state’s ban on same-sex marriage. In case anyone wonders or cares, I think this is a Very Good Thing. And I wonder whether they cite to Loving v. Virginia. Also, anyone else feel free to blog here.
EDIT: Here’s a link to the opinion. Looking at it very quickly, the narrow issue that the California Supreme Court decided, as a matter of California constitutional law, is this: once the state established a domestic partnership regime for same sex couples that gave pretty much all of the tangible legal rights and imposed pretty much all of the responsibilities as marriage, can the state still reserve the word “marriage” for mixed-sex (if that’s the term) couples only?
