ALBANY, N.Y. - A judge Thursday dismissed criminal charges against a small-town mayor for marrying gay couples, saying the state failed to show it has a legitimate interest in banning same-sex weddings.
New Paltz Town Court Justice Jonathan Katz also ruled that prosecutors failed to prove the law New Paltz Mayor Jason West was charged with violating was constitutional.
Ker-SLAP! Mwuuhahahahaha! Score one for the good guys. :)
Still a long road of course, but there are times when a pause and smile are appropriate.
