MBA applauds SCOTUS decision upholding same-sex marriage equality

The Massachusetts Bar Association applauds last week's historic U.S. Supreme Court decision upholding same-sex marriage equality in all 50 states.

Massachusetts was the first state in the nation to allow same-sex marriage in the groundbreaking Goodridge decision by the Supreme Judicial Court in 2003. The MBA filed an amicus brief in support of same-sex marriage in that case.

"The Massachusetts Bar Association has supported same-sex marriage equality since the early 1990s and today's Supreme Court decision is a major victory for our entire country and especially here in Massachusetts where we led the way in making same-sex marriage a universal right," said MBA President Marsha V. Kazarosian.
