New Jersey’s Supreme Court has just issued its decision in Lewis v. Harris, a case brought by seven New Jersey same-sex couples who sought marriage licenses but were denied.  The couples argued that the state violated their rights to privacy and equal protection under the New Jersey Constitution.

Today, the Court issued its opinion which gave the State legislature180 days to either amend the marriage statutes or enact an appropriate statutory structure which will allow same-sex couples to exercise their full constitutional rights.
