If no one is defending the law, what choice does the judge have other than issue a summary judgment in favor of the plaintiffs?

Especially considering the Prop 8 precedent.

The reality is it has happened yet. don't count your chickens before......

AFTER the judge issues a formal ruling, however long that may be, then we can celebrate.

And I don't think this piece-meal approach going state by state is a good idea. What we need is a ruling by SCOTUS that marriage is a fundamental right of ALL Americans that is protected by the U.S. Constitution.

His Obama outbursts are completely involuntary, and pour out at the strangest and most irrelevant times. We don't believe he can control this.

If a ruling comes against the wishes of the citizens of VA, we will be set up for destruction like the rest of the states that got Federal edicts shoved down their throats. Whats happening to our country when we allow fleshly desires to dictate what we want or don't want. Homosexuality brought down numerous empires.....shall we be another example. God forbid!!!!!!
