Same sex marriage drama!

Lesbian breakup drama comes to the Ocean State! Should Rhode Island grant a divorce to two women married in Massachusetts? Would this constitute a de facto recognition of gay marriage in Rhode Island? Does anyone really care?

I know one law student in particular who would dismiss the entire thing with a haughty "lesbians don't really exist" before reminding me once again that women are drama junkies who should be quiet, get their overfed asses in the kitchen and start making sandwiches. Then again, she's a total misogynist.

Me? I don't really care. The pugnacious portly Portuguese pundit invites her listeners in Fall River, MA to go out and hate gays over at her blog, but I just can't get that worked up about it.

On a typically unrelated note, Dictators of the World has more new updates than you can shake a military coup at.

Anyway...

It's not unusual for judges in one state to apply another state's laws.

And, as long as service of process was accomplished in Rhode Island, Rhode Island has jurisdiction.

And, there is no power for one state to transfer the suit to another state.

So unless the court dismisses it for some reason...

Very interesting. Thank you very much for the kind words.
