Texas judge grants state's first same-sex divorce over AG's objections

A Texas judge who allowed a lesbian couple to divorce in Texas (the couple had married in Massachusetts in 2004) has rejected the state attorney general's move to overturn his decision.  The AG had argued the divorce could not be granted because Texas does not recognize same-sex marriages.  The case is expected to end up in the Texas Supreme Court.

Meanwhile, Professor Art Leonard analyzes a similar case that went the other way in Pennsylvania.
