Findlaw column: choice of law, the Constitution, and same-sex marriage

Friends and colleagues,


I have a new column on  In it I
argue why existing marriage recognition doctrines are outmoded in the face
of thousands of new same-sex marriages from California and Massachusetts
because they give too much deference to states, and I propose a new way of
thinking about marriage recognition as a right protected by the due process


I'd very much welcome comments or suggestions, as this is the Cliffs Notes
version of a law review piece I'm working on.  


Many thanks,

Steve Sanders
