The US Supreme Court's denial of certiorari today effectively ends the debate on same-sex marriage in the capital. Reverend Harry Jackson's one man crusade to try and invalidate same-sex marriage in DC has effectively been squashed.
Jackson petitioned the court after requesting the city hold a referendum on marriage equality. The city declined his demand citing a law that bans any initiatives which would violate the District's human rights laws. Jackson took the city to court but lost and the Supremes just rejected his case entirely. Think he'll catch a clue this time?
The Court, who conferenced on the case, Jackson v. the D.C. Board of Elections and Ethics, last Friday, did not comment on the decision according to the Associated Press...
Jackson's chances this time around were quite slim, and now, he's been summarily shot down twice by the Court. It leaves one wondering how many more times Jackson will actually be able to keep pestering the judicial apex about it -- something tells us this latest setback won't stop him from trying, no matter how weak his arguments appear to be at this point.
