The Supreme Court about an hour ago turned aside all seven appeals of Circuit Court decisions overturning gay marriage bans in Indiana, Oklahoma, Utah, Virginia, and Wisconsin.
But, more to the point for North Carolinians, the decision not to hear appeals from gay marriage opponents, means it's suddenly about to be legal in several other states: "Couples in six other states — Colorado, Kansas, North Carolina, South Carolina, West Virginia and Wyoming — should be able to get married in short order. Those states would be bound by the same appellate rulings that were put on hold pending the Supreme Court's review." (Winston-Salem Journal coverage)
All we need is an order from a Federal judge in the Middle District of North Carolina in Greensboro.
Goodbye, Amendment One! So happy to see you go!
