LOS ANGELES (AP) — Martin Sheen commanded the stage with his impassioned portrayal of an attorney arguing for gay-marriage rights; Jane Lynch inspired instant response as a vehement same-sex marriage opponent; Brad Pitt dazzled as a judge.
It was a decision made in a courtroom some 1,800 miles away. It only applies to the state of California; the federal judge who made it went on to stay it in anticipation of an appeal, which came promptly.
Yet, the move Wednesday to overturn a voter-backed California ban on same-sex marriage reverberated in North Dakota, where a 2004 constitutional amendment banning gay marriage remains unchallenged.
