Countdown to CA Supreme Court Decision on Same-Sex Marriage

The California Supreme Court will hand down its decision in re: Marriage Cases TOMORROW, May 15, 2008.

The day we've all been waiting for. In 2004, 4,161 same-sex couples were married in San Francisco over the course of 29 days. It was a magical and moving moment in the history of the LGBT civil rights movement. That moment came to a screeching halt when the California State Supreme Court ruled the marriages illegal and invalid. Thus began a chain of legal proceedings that will culminate with the Court's next decision about the constitutionality of the state law defining marriage as the union of a man and a woman. When the decision comes, we'll be ready and we hope you'll join us.
