Justice Delays Ruling on Gay Marriage Ballot Measure
Justice Judith Cowin sent the decision on whether to include a proposed constitutional amendment banning gay marriage to the full panel of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court after hearing arguments from Governor Mitt Romney and his wingnut gang.
Romney made the decision to request that the court take action after lawmakers delayed a proposed constiutional convention until January, the last day of the session, virtually assuring that the amendment would be killed.
The seven justices who will rule on the matter are the same seven who voted 4-3 to legalize gay marriage in 2003. A hearing is set for December 20.
