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.
