Law profs analyze "state of the union" for same-sex couples
Law professors Joanna Grossman and Edward Stein begin a three-part series at Findlaw on what they call the "state of the union" on the rights of same-sex couples in the United States. In the first installment, they offer a brief history of the battle over the same-sex marriage -- from the first wave of cases in the 1970s in which the idea of same-sex marriage was broached and roundly rejected, through the most recent legislative and judicial developments that have made same-sex marriage a legal reality. In parts two and three, they will describe the current legal landscape for same-sex couples and the current state of the law regarding interstate recognition of marriages.
