Kentucky recognizes same-sex marriages

It was been a very interesting seven months since we file the Bourke vs. Beshear case. This case asked the Court to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other States and Countries. As of yesterday, 2/27/14, the Commonwealth of Kentucky now recognizes all marriages, whether opposite-sex or same-sex, as being equal.

For the lawyers in our firm, this has been a entirely new experience. We were used to helping individuals on a daily basis, but this is the first time we have been able to help an entire state achieve equality.

We started this case on our own, with no backing from any organization. We later had Dan Canon , Laura Landenwich, and L. Joe Dunman come on board to work together to achieve this historic event.

We could not be prouder to be Kentuckians today. On an interesting side note, I have found that at each step of the way, Wikipedia gets updated before 10pm every night on updates on the case.
