A state judge just ruled the Louisiana same-sex marriage ban unconstitutional

Only weeks after a district judge upheld Louisiana’s constitutional ban on same-sex marriage, a Louisiana state judge just ruled the law is unconstitutional.

Judge Edward Rubin ruled the state’s ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional and in violation of the due process and equal protection clauses of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and the full faith and credit clause.

Since the Supreme Court struck down DOMA in 2013, we witnessed 21 sequential rulings against same-marriage bans that was abruptly, and erroneously, broken by District Judge Martin Feldman.

This latest ruling is good news, my friends…although I would wager it will be appealed.
