Overdue 'I dos' to be considered by Cali's high court
In March of '05, a Superior Court Judge ruled that California's gay marriage ban is unconstitutional. In October of '06, the state Court of Appeal reversed that decision, forcing gay advocates to keep the legal fight alive. So now the issue has reached the Golden State Supreme Court, with a pro-gay marriage brief filed yesterday by the city and county of San Francisco, 15 same-sex couples, and a who's who of our staunchest defenders (Equality California, the ACLU, Lambda Legal, et al):

Will this latest plea for fairness and decency right the long-held wrong? Will this court rightly find that the lower court erred by forcing gay activists to prove that they have a right to marry, not to prove that the state doesn't have a right to tell them that they can't? Will Will/Will ever get to say "I do" in Willow Creek? Will Claudette discover that Max is having an affair with Lana, the sultry court reporter?
