Conn. Gay Marriage Decision Coming

GLAD has put out an alert that the long-awaited decision in Kerrigan and Mock v. Connecticut Department of Public Health will be announced later this morning by the state's Supreme Court. Expect an announcement at 11:30.

Kerrigan-Mock is quite similar to the California case in many ways, and as the time has dragged on (it's been 17 months since oral arguments) there has been much speculation about what will happen.

The lower court ruled, in effect, that the state was within its rights to deny marriage to same-sex couples. Thus, gay-marriage advocates are hoping to see the SC overturn; a ruling to uphold would mean no same-sex marriage in Connecticut.

I think the odds are good for CT to become the third state to allow gay marriage. Stay tuned!
