BREAKING: French Constitutional Court Upholds Marriage Equality

Agence France-Presse has just reported on Twitter that France‘s constitutional court has upheld the legality of the nation’s new marriage equality law:

President François Hollande, who campaigned on a promise to bring mariage pour tous (marriage for all) to France, pledged yesterday to sign the bill into law as soon as the constitutional court released its decision:

So marriage equality is, for all intents and purposes, a done deal in France.

UPDATE: BFM TV is reporting that Hollande will sign the bill into law tomorrow (Saturday).

Libertéégalité, fraternité. Vive la France!

    Please post an update on your lawsuit concerning Regnerus. The answer should have been served by now, right?

      Thanks for the inquiry, Steven. My lawsuit is still winding its way through the courts. Believe me, the delays are frustrating, but I promise to post an update as soon as new information becomes available. Thank you so much for your interest!

    Thanks, John! I was just checking in because the responsive pleading (answer) is typically due 30 days after the service of the complaint. I’ll keep checking back for updates. A lot of people are interested in this and are very grateful to you for pursuing this.

What do you think?
