March 4 equality gets March 4 booking

by Jeremy Hooper

California-3-2Well, we knew it was coming sooner rather than later, but now we have an official date. The California Supreme Court has announced that they will finally take up the issue of marriage equality on March 4, at which time the high court will hold an extended three-hour hearing on the subject. The SF Chronicle has more:

State high court sets hearing on same-sex marriages for March 4 [SF Gate]

After the hearing, a ruling will come down within 90 days. So will this engagement lead to a slew of summer weddings for CA gays? Will it finally give gays the equality they could already have if only Maria Shriver's husband wouldn't have twice vetoed a legislature-initiated measure? Or will this be another instance in which a court accepts the flawed ideas that our opposition has so often used against us, keeping our marriage at bay for yet another day?

We'll know soon enough, hopeful queers.

Your thoughts

I remeber watching the entire arguement before our supreme court here in New York and being hopeful. And we know how that turned out.

I know that in California, there will be others watching their moment before their court.

Here's hopeing for a different outcome.
