Massachusetts Same-Sex Marriage News 

The SJC has agreed to hear an appeal to the Goodridge case, which legalized same-sex marriage in the Commonwealth. "The appeal asks the Court to stay its decision so that the process currently underway to amend the state's constitution by defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman can proceed...." From the Thomas Moore Law Center, who filed the appeal on behalf of C. Joseph Doyle, the executive director of the Catholic Action League of Massachusetts.

Also, in local news, Massachusetts Attorney General Tom Reilly, who originally opposed the SJC ruling in Goodridge, has come out in support of the Court's decision in that case. See the Boston Globe for more.
