Judge Orders Compensation To Same Sex Couple

In what could be a significant development a federal judge in California has ordered damages to be paid by Sears to a same sex couple that was married during the five month period that same sex marriages were legal. This ruling would support the concept that any marriages performed during the period remain valid.

I would think even those who oppose marriage equality would have to agree that since it was legal when this couple was married and since Proposition 8 did not retroactively cancel such unions that the ruling is wholly proper.
