No, this is not a blog about medicine. It's Sanford Hausler's blog about the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit and its opinions. The Court doesn't know about this, but I don't think it would mind.

Same sex marriage. Well, it isn't a Second Circuit case, but it's pretty important to New Yorkers. The New York State Court of Appeals has held that the New York Constitution does not require that the option of marriage be available to couples of the same sex. For the opinion (written by Judge Robert Smith) can be found here. Chief Judge Kaye and Judge Ciparick dissented. Judge Rosenblatt took no part in the case.
