The other big news: All eyes on California tomorrow

Tomorrow the California State Supreme Court will hand down its decision on whether same-sex couples in California should be allowed to get married. As a former community adviser member of the Civil Marriage Collaborative, I had the privilege of watching local organizations set up the groundwork for the events that have led to the big day.

On April 15th, Ryan J. Davis posted an entry on The Huffington Post naming anonymous sources from the California Court System indicating that the Court would grant full marriage rights. Speculation which was quickly questioned (if probably less read) by notable New York University Law School professor Arthur Leonard over on his blog.

Speculation or not, let's hope the Court rules in favor of equal rights for all.
