FloridaAnother Florida marriage equality ruling – this one from a state judge in Miami-Dade County.

Equality on Trial reports

A state judge in Miami-Dade County, Florida, has struck down the same sex marriage ban, in a case brought by the National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR). The case was argued earlier this month. The court noted the long string of wins in court – this decision is the thirty-second win – in striking down the ban: “The recognition that the right to marry encompasses categories of people not traditionally considered to be accorded that right has been slow in coming, but it has become increasingly obvious that it is not constitutionally permissible to deny same-sex couples the right to marry.”

The decision has been put on hold pending appeal.
