Same Sex, Different Laws

There have been several legal stories regarding gay marriage recently, so I called upon attorney Angela Giampolo to offer some analysis on my America Weekend show. We touched on:

  • a New Jersey judge ruling that the Supreme Court's DOMA decision and the state's own constitution don't prohibit same-sex marriage, even though Gov. Chris Christie has vetoed a bill passed by the state legislature;
  • the continuing fight in Pennsylvania after a local official began issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples and a state court ruled them invalid;
  • similar efforts in New Mexico by local officials in more than 30 counties;
  • Exxon Mobil offering benefits to same-sex couples who have legally married.
