Florida judge in Broward County rules in favor of marriage equality

A Circuit judge in Broward County, FL ruled in favor of the freedom to marry, adding to the growing momentum calling for marriage in Florida.

The ruling was in Brassner v. Lade, a case where a Florida woman is seeking respect for her out-of-state marriage for the purpose of dissolution of the marriage. In today’s ruling, Judge Dale Cohen declared broadly that Florida must respect the plaintiff’s marriage and that Florida’s marriage ban is unconstitutional altogether.
