As Roberta Kaplan reminded us earlier, the anniversary of the Supreme Court striking down the Defense of Marriage Act in the Windsor case is tomorrow. What a year it's been. From the federal court ruling today lifting Indiana's gay marriage ban:
The court has never witnessed a phenomenon throughout the federal court system as is presented with this issue.

It is clear that the fundamental right to marry shall not be deprived to some individuals based solely on the person they choose to love. In time, Americans will look at the marriage of couples such as Plaintiffs, and refer to it simply as a marriage – not a same-sex marriage. These couples, when gender and sexual orientation are taken away, are in all respects like the family down the street. The Constitution demands that we treat them as such.
