Divorced by the Majority

Volokh, a well-respected moderate legal blogger, is of the opinion that the California courts will be forced to revoke the license of the 18,000 California same-sex couples who married in the 4 months when it was legal.

Apparently ex post facto laws only apply to criminal statutes, not civil ones. Oy.

If that holds, it’d be quite bizarre- 18,000 couples will be divorced because their fellow citizens said so.  

Yes, beloved Ellen DeGeneres may be included in the newly-divorced.  Feel free to send her cards of condolence.
