Decision in Gay Marriage Cases Due Thursday at 10:00am

The California Supreme Court has announced that it will issue its decision in In re Marriage Casesat 10:00 am on Thursday, May 15, 2008.  Whatever the ultimate result in the case, this should prove to be a significant addition to the state’s jurisprudence on that Equal Protection guaranty in the California Constitution.

As soon as the decision is announced, I will post comments on the decision with an eye toward what it might mean for future Equal Protection challenges in different contexts (I will leave the social commentary to others).  In the meantime, I will post information on how other states have ruled on the same issue.
