Maryland's Highest Court Permits Same-Sex Marriage Ban

In a case published today (Sept. 18, 2007), the Maryland's highest court (the Court of Appeals of Maryland) ruled that the state's ban on marriage was constitutional and permissible.

The text of the opinion can be found here:  Conaway v. Deane (Md. Sept. 18, 2007)

A discussion of the decision will follow shortly.
