article By now, you’ve probably seen the headlines: Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is gone.
The Court’s liberals have lost their chance to overturn DOMA, the 1996 federal law that banned gay marriage in the United States.
But what’s left of the liberal majority will probably have a lot of explaining to do.
The Supreme Court decided on Monday that states could no longer ban gay marriage, and the justices will now decide whether to uphold or invalidate California’s ban on same sex marriage.
A lot of people are going to be disappointed with the result.
What do the big winners of the DOMA decision look like?
The court’s decision is an enormous victory for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which has long opposed gay marriage and sought to have it declared unconstitutional.
It is the first time that a federal appeals court has decided a state’s constitutional ban on gay marriage.
But that’s not the only thing that’s changed.
The ACLU is a powerful force in American politics.
In 2010, the organization helped defeat a similar California ballot measure that would have prohibited same-gender marriage in California.
It also led the fight against the Affordable Care Act, a landmark health care reform law signed in 2010.
And last year, the group filed a lawsuit to block President Donald Trump’s executive order barring immigrants from seven Muslim-majority countries.
The new decision will be a huge boon for LGBT rights activists, and will hopefully help the fight for same-date marriage nationwide.
In short, the ACLU is now a powerful player in the fight to legalize same-day marriage.
That means that it can make a big difference in the Supreme War Room, where the justices have been deliberating on the issue for the past few months.
That’s because in 2015, the Court ruled that California was the wrong place to ban same-doubling, and it ruled in favor of same-party marriage, the practice in which same- or opposite-sex couples can marry.
California’s ruling allowed same- sex couples to wed.
The court, however, has ruled that gay couples are entitled to the same protections of marriage equality, including the right to marry.
If that ruling stands, same-dating couples in California will no longer be able to marry, a move that could end the practice.
Same-sex marriages are now legal in 29 states, but same-dates in those states will be allowed to marry only under certain conditions.
In some states, it is only permitted to marry under certain circumstances, such as during a hospital emergency, if the couple is a victim of domestic violence.
Same-sex partners who are victims of domestic abuse, however are not permitted to wed under any circumstances.
The state of Washington, which has allowed same sex couples for decades, will soon be the first state to legalize that practice.
But there are a number of other states that have decided to do away with their bans on same gender marriage.
In Alabama, where gay marriage was banned in 2016, the state is set to allow same- gender couples to marry by the end of the year.
And the Supreme Courts of Mississippi and Louisiana have also ruled in their favor.
But in those three states, only the state legislature can approve same- and opposite-gender marriages, and in some cases, only by the Republican-led legislature.
In the next few weeks, the court will also be considering whether to overturn Wisconsin’s ban, which is currently being challenged in federal court.
That means that the court is likely to uphold the bans in Arizona and New Mexico, which already have same- dating bans in place.
And in a separate decision, the Supreme court has also ruled that it is unconstitutional for states to ban gay couples from receiving welfare benefits.
In the end, however.
while the court’s ruling will likely be a major blow to same- date marriage, it may not be the only one.
A federal appeals panel will have to decide whether the Supreme Judicial Court of New Jersey’s decision that same- sexual couples are not entitled to equal protection under the law is correct, as it could undermine the Court’s ruling on DOMA.
If the lower court agrees with the Supreme judicial panel’s decision, that could lead to a massive legal battle.
And it could make it harder for same sex unions to become legal across the country.
That’s why the ACLU will be spending a lot more time than usual this week preparing its legal strategy for this battle.
We’re going to need to spend a lot less time than normal in order to ensure that the Supreme decision will stand.
We are going back to work immediately, said John Donnelly, the executive director of the ACLU of Northern California, which filed a brief supporting the case in the California Supreme Court.
“We’re going back and forth with the court.
The time to act is now.”
