Iowa Judges Who Struck Down Marriage Law Voted Out

leave a comment »

Howard Friedman at the Religion Clause reports that three of the Iowa Supreme Court justices who voted to strike down that state’s marriage law were voted off the bench.  I did a write-up of the Varnum v. Brien case a while back, explaining why there was no sane interpretation of the Constitution to strike down Iowa’s one-man-one-woman marriage definition, given the state was plenty progressive in other aspects of gay rights, thus giving little support that there was any animus driving the law.
