    A poll of 1,400 people or so doesn't mean anything for 2016.

    Agreed. . .but it's still a concern And, to read the comments on articles like this or any that deal with President Obama, there are many out there who think he's the worst president this country has ever elected; when historians give that position to Franklin Pierce, a distant relative to W's wife

    UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon announces policy change on marriage:

    United Nations will now recognize gay marriage

    The United Nations has announced that it will extend equal benefits to its employees who have entered into same-sex unions in jurisdictions where they are legal.

    California redacts marriage laws, superseding Proposition 22.

    California governor signs bill to update state’s marriage laws

    The bill, SB1306, takes effect Jan. 1, reflecting the legality of same-sex marriage after a decade of litigation. Brown announced the signing Monday.

    Roanoke Times article on why the 4th Circuit has not ruled quickly.

    Gay marriage ruling should come soon, experts say

    But the fact that the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has not yet weighed in may indicate opposing views on the three-judge panel and that the judges are likely reviewing recent decisions by other courts in marriage cases across the country.

    ...

    ...the groundbreaking Utah ruling meant that the judges in Richmond needed to “read and digest the lengthy majority and dissenting 10th Circuit opinions and incorporate relevant ideas into their opinions,” [Professor Carl] Tobias said.

    Numerous readers have let the editors of this newspaper know they have tired of reading about the issue of same-sex marriage. How might we get this matter out of the news?

    Give everyone in the society equal rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, including when it comes to choosing a life partner and enjoying the legal protections and financial benefits that accompany marriage.

    Normal people rarely make the news, and the exceptional who become normal disappear rapidly from the public eye.
    This is what happened across Canada.

    We are no longer a topic of conversation, a wedge issue or a distraction from getting on with the real issues that get in the way of societal growth and happiness.

    It could but it really shouldn't since the 10th can't directly influence the state courts. Honestly, I think Crabtree sees the bullshit going on and is taking the time to beef up his ruling so it withstands any attempts to appeal/stay.

    That as well. I will say the State Supreme Court is 5-2 Democrat so that should bode well for us.

    Utah AG Sean Reyes will appeal right to the US Supreme Court, forgoing an en banc request. The 14 day deadline to request the whole 10th Circuit passed today.



    Utah marriage case fast-tracked to SCOTUS

    The state has 90 days from the June 25 judgement, placing the deadline at September 23. The Supreme Court will not be in session until October.

    Statement from the AG's spokesperson:

    SCOTUSblog said in a tweet the 10th Circuit decision is likely to be taken, heard in March, and returned 5-4 by the end of the term. I agree.

    Re: What is new on the Gay Marriage front?

    Sorry if I'm asking a bunch of dumb questions, but will this case be enough to get the win with SCOTUS? Or would it help if more cases from more states also find their way there?

    Also, how final is a SCOTUS ruling? Can a new SC in the future backtrack on this decision?

    Again, sorry for the questions - having studied law in Norway doesn't seem to help in understanding US laws. Also the issue is already moot over here... Big thanks to Alnitak and everyone else in this thread - it's one of my favorite threads here!

    Yes one is enough, but it always helps to have more cases. There should be three to five circuit decisions by October.

    Only two things can undo a Supreme Court strike down: another Supreme Court decision or a constitutional amendment.

    Plessy vs. Ferguson in which the SC upheld in 1896 state segregation laws was overturned by the SC in the 1954 case Brown vs. Board of Education. . .this is probably the best example of a Supreme Court case being overturned by a later Supreme Court

    Adams judge tosses Colorado gay marriage ban but stays ruling

    By Jordan Steffen, The Denver Post
    July 9, 2014 | http://www.denverpost.com/news/ci_26...rriage-ban-but

    An Adams County District Court judge on Wednesday [July 9, 2014] declared Colorado's ban on same-sex marriages unconstitutional, but he immediately stayed his ruling.

    The ruling makes Colorado the latest in a string of states that have seen their bans on same-sex marriages tossed out by state and federal judges.

    Alito rejected the plea, not because he's for marriage equality, but because she didn't have standing.

    That was sort of a no-brainer. Alito was probably disgusted at having to waste his time on such a non-starter.

    "Thirty-one* states allow all qualified citizens to carry concealed weapons. In those states, homosexuals should embark on organized efforts to become comfortable with guns, learn to use them safely and carry them. They should set up Pink Pistols task forces, sponsor shooting courses and help homosexuals get licensed to carry. And they should do it in a way that gets as much publicity as possible. "

    The 7th Circuit has scheduled oral arguments in the Wisconsin and Indiana cases for 8/13, just one month away. This kind of speed for a federal case is almost unheard of. The Indiana cases were filed in March, and to have a federal appeals court hear it within five months from original filing, it's simply unreal.

    Arguments set for state court case Kentucky Equality Federation v. Beshear on 8/16

    The federal case in Kentucky, Love v. Beshear, is stayed pending resolution of the 6th Circuit cases.

    Upon federal court rulings being stayed, couples should immediately file suit in state court since they overrule the federal district and appeals courts. I think we'll be seeing more of this after the situation in Colorado and (likely) Florida.

    Re: What is new on the Gay Marriage front?

    The federal judge will decided by the end of next week to allow same-sex couples to begin marrying. Meanwhile the state supreme court will also decide if the three counties can continuing issuing licenses. Given the fact that they didn't immediately stop them from doing so, they are unlikely to halt them from doing so. It's likely at this point that Colorado will be the permanent 20th state to have same-sex marriage by the end of the month!

    Here's hoping for that. The more states in the win column the better.

    The 7th Circuit has spontaneously cancelled this date. Why do they do that?

    *frustrating*

    It could be anything but it does suck that it is getting pushed back.
    Even though it's a Republican court, I have a better feeling about that then the 6th.

    They never quit. I like how in their briefing they predict the Supreme Court will side with the dissenting judge. Nice to tell the swing vote Kennedy that his mind is made up already.

    Why do people still call Kennedy a swing vote?

    Roberts has been more of a swing vote the past three or four years, than Kennedy. Roberts voted that the Obamacare mandate is constitutional. As far as I'm aware (without researching, relying only on memory, and somebody may prove me wrong), Kennedy has voted 100% on the conservative side (i.e. with those who are TRULY the activist justices) of everything in recent years, including the horrific Citizens United, and various terrible votes this month, voting rights, etc.

    I guess common wisdom is that Kennedy is likely to vote on "our" side on this issue, though.
    "All legal U. S. residents who are 18 years or older, shall have an unconditional right to vote." - We need a 28th Amendment to the U. S. Constitution which resembles this...NOW!

    VOTING: Just remember: "Be careful of what you DON'T wish for. You might just get it." GET OUT AND VOTE, instead, for what you DO wish for.

    Re: What is new on the Gay Marriage front?

    On 7/11/14, the 10th Circuit court ordered Utah to recognize the ~1200 gay marriages performed there between December 20, 2013 and January 6, 2014. The court declared these marriages are "forever valid" and ordered Utah to "permanently recognize" them.

    Today, Utah filed with SCOTUS an emergency appeal to have this latest order of the 10th circuit also stayed. Utah asserts a "certainty of irreparable harm to the state" if a stay is not granted. The state describes, for example, the possibility that gay married couples may try to adopt children in coming weeks if the state is forced to recognize their marriages. It also describes the possibility that gay married couples may try to claim health insurance benefits as spouses.

    All that would certainly be a disaster to social order in Utah.

    Kennedy is not 100% conservative. He authored the three major gay rights victories at the Supreme Court if you recall.

    He's also helped played a role in the reduction of capital punishment in this country.
    In other words, Kennedy is 10% nice, 90% dick when it comes to many issues.

    After 19 states with active marriage equality, and 14 with stayed decisions, it looks like Louisiana will be the next state:
