Connecticut Court Rules in Favor of Gay Marriage

The Court’s 4-3 decision was issued Friday morning. The decision overturned a lower- court ruling in the case brought by the eight couples, including lead plaintiffs Beth Kerrigan and Jody Mock (pictured).

Couples will probably be able to go their town halls and be legally married by some time in early to mid November, predicted Attorney General Richard Blumenthal. The way the process works: Friday’s Supreme Court decision now goes back to Superior Court on Oct. 28, the ruling’s effective date. At that point the Superior Court must issue a judgment implementing the decision. It can happen immediately, or it can take a week or so.

The majority in the case, titled Kerrigan v. Connecticut Department of Public Health, made the link to one-time ban on interracial marriage. They also said that civil unions, the current legal option for gay couples in Connecticut, are not an equal substitute for marriage.

The United States AND Connecticut need to pass a Federal, and State version of the Private Attorney General bill into law, giving us back our rights and our people power by bolstering the Grand Jury System. [more information].

There would not be so much Connecticut State Police misconduct, judicial abuse, and US Public Corruption with a Private Attorney General law in place. An independent Grand Jury could accept tips in any form, vote to have a private investigation, indictment, and trial, where there is actual punishments for White Collar Crimes, Public Corruption, and Crimes against Humanity. Officials from George W. Bush on down should respect the law and FEAR prosecution for wrongdoing.

NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- A state official who helped send former Gov. John G. Rowland to prison in a corruption case told a federal grand jury that she received many of the same expensive hotel getaways, lavish dinners and limousine rides that were used to bribe the governor's office. [more]

This is how all 3 of Connecticut Branches of Government STILL work:

As part of his guilty plea, Rowland admitted taking $91,494 in benefits from Key Air for free travel between April 1999 and November 2000. In 2002, at the urging of Rowland's office, state legislators approved a retroactive tax-exemption for Key Air, according to the plea bargain agreement Rowland signed in December. A legislative analysis said the tax break was worth $800,000 immediately and $200,000 a year thereafter.

DeRosa and other witnesses also confirmed for investigators reports that Rowland received money from his gambling pals, sources said. Wealthy friends of Rowland routinely left thousands of dollars in cash for him at the conclusion of card games, some at the governor's mansion in Hartford.

The Courant reported in April that some of Rowland's poker buddies had been subpoenaed by the federal grand jury looking into corruption in state government; according to sources, the players left "significant" sums of money on the card table after play had ended.
