I know that this is a bit delayed, but, since all the members of BBL are gainfully employed (or so I assume), we were unable to post until now. For those unaware, the California Supremes upheld Proposition 8, and therefore, declared that same-sex marriages are no longer legal in California (though, those 18000 marriages performed before today will be unaffected). For previous BBL commentary on Prop. 8 click here, here, and here.
The opinion is here. It's a 185-page doozy, so I'm not reading it until Saturday. One of my colleagues will probably be along shortly to analyze it. As for Fred, he's gots ta get some dinner and watch some Rescue Me.
