Maine voters nix gay marriage

same-sex marriage imageWith a 53 pecent majority, Maine voters rejected that state’s new gay-marriage law, meaning same-sex marriage has lost in all 31 states in which it has been put to a popular vote.  Law Professor Robert Volk, an authority on the law and sexual minorities and advisor to the Law School’s LGBT student group, called the vote disheartening.

“While the vote was close, the result shows that gay and lesbian Americans still have a lot of work to do before we can secure the rights enjoyed by other Americans.”
