Washington Supreme Court Case on Marriage Equality Expected Within Hours July 26, 2006

Posted by newsfittopost in legal, lgbt Issues, marriage equality.

The Washington Supreme Court is expected to release its decision in a marriage equality case that was argued over 15 months ago. Both supporters and opponents of marriage equality are optimistic about the upcoming ruling. Unlike in the New York case, I am not about to predict which way the court will rule… I believe it is too close to call.

The impact of this court case could be tremendous. A loss could push the LGBT movement away from relying on legal court battles and renew its focus on legislation. A win could rejuvenate LGBT legal rights groups that have been demoralized by a series of losses over the past month.

This is perhaps one of the most important legal decisions on marriage equality since the Goodridge ruling legalized same-sex marriage in Massachusetts. The decision could come down in the next few hours (between 11am-1pm ET).
