Breaking: Washington state marriage ruling comes down tomorrow
The Seattle Post-Intelligencer is reporting that Washington’s long-awaited state Supreme Court ruling on whether gays and lesbians can marry is going to be issued tomorrow. I checked and the court’s web site says so as well. Cross fingers, people…(Thanks for the tip, Gary):
The state Supreme Court is set to announce tomorrow whether Washington will become the second state to let same-sex couples marry — a controversial issue that’s left people on both sides waiting more than a year for an answer.
In a case that some have called the court’s most significant in years, justices could decide Washington’s law that defines marriage as a union between one man and one woman is unconstitutional, opening the door for same-sex couples to tie the knot.
A notice of the pending decision was posted today on the court’s Web site.
This will come down at 8 AM.
