This morning, a King County Superior Court judge ruled Washington's ban on same sex marriage in violation of the state constitution.
"The Court concludes that the exclusion of same-sex partners from civil marriage and the privileges attendant thereto is not rationally related to any legitimate or compelling state interest and is certainly not narrowly tailored toward such an interest."
This will end up in the state Supreme Court, but still is wonderful news!
