Earlier this week I submitted my application to practice law in the state of Iowa.  I am glad I did.

Today the Iowa Supreme Court, in a decision announced today, unanimously held an Iowa statute defining marriage as solely between a man and a woman, was violative of Iowa's Equal Protection Clause.

I am proud to hopefully soon be able to practice law in a state where civil rights are alive, where invidious discrimination against recognizable classes of people will not be allowed to stand.  Those who yearn for civil rights have seven new heroes today.
