The Not So Great News Even If Wisconsin’s Supreme Court Declares Marriage Ban Unconstitutional

I’ve been waiting around all day for the Wisconsin Supreme Court, ruler of newly single Rep. Tammy Baldwin’s home state, to decide whether the 2006 state constitution’s voter-approved ban on same-sex marriage can stand, and then I realized I had my calendar mis-marked. The ruling is expected tomorrow! Which gives you plenty of time to get excited about the possibility of the amendment being declared invalid, and then sad again when you realize the court’s decision, depending on how narrow it is, might not change things as the state law passed by legislators defining marriage as between a man and a woman still exists.
