Georgia Court Reinstates Gay Marriage Ban

Hopefully California will follow suit.

AFA.Net – Divisions – Center for Law and Policy – Press Release – 7/6/2006:

Atlanta, GA – In a unanimous decision, the Georgia Supreme Court today ruled that a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage did not violate the state’s single-subject rule for ballot measures. The ruling reversed a lower court decision that found the ban violated the state’s single-subject rule.

The ruling reinstated the amendment which was approved by 76 percent of voters in November 2004. After the lower court struck the ban as unconstitutional, Gov. Sonny Perdue said he would call a special session of the General Assembly if the high court did not reinstate the ban.
