Today the Louisiana Supreme Court issued a decision in Costanza v. Caldwell, a case involving same-sex marriage that has managed to fly under the radar of main-stream media. Since my firm represented an amicus in the case, I won’t comment on the decision; instead I’ll just report the facts. The trial court had held Louisiana’s ban on same-sex marriage unconstitutional. The State appealed to the Louisiana Supreme Court. Today the Louisiana Supreme Court dismissed the appeal on grounds of mootness, as the issue has since been decided by the U.S. Supreme Court, the U.S. Fifth Circuit, and the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana. Justices Knoll, Weimer, Guidry, and Chrichton filed concurring opinions; Justice Hughes filed a dissenting opinion. Here are links to the press release and the decision itself, including the concurring and dissenting opinions.
