< Previous Page

The long-term trend in favor of acceptance of same-sex marriage affects the courts. As each state’s same-sex marriage ban is struck down, it serves as a domino effect helping make the next legal challenge easier, said Jon Davidson, director of Lambda Legal, which pursues litigation on LGBT issues nationwide. The Ohio ruling this week cited the Utah ruling from last week.

"You are going to see more federal courts do what just happened in Ohio and Utah," Koppelman predicted.
