Gay marriage verdict

Download it here.

Key verbiage:

We therefore conclude that although the provisions of the current domestic partnership legislation afford same-sex couples most of the substantive elements embodied in the constitutional right to marry, the current California statutes nonetheless must be viewed as potentially impinging upon a same-sex couple’s constitutional right to marry under the California Constitution.

I think this means they're ruling in favor of gay marriage in California.

Yes, I guess I was right. You heard it here first folks, just 7 min after release.

From Tenant508 on DailyKos, who is slogging through the document:
"To the extent the current California statutory provisions limit marriage to opposite-sex couples, these statutes are unconstitutional."
