    •  Yep (0+ / 0-)

      Of the ten US jurisdictions that currently have marriage equality, 7 of them achieved it by legislative or quasi-legislative (the Maine referendum) means. Only MA, CT and IA got there by court decisions (directly, at least; VT's marriage law replaced court-mandated civil unions). (Note that CT legislatively brought its marriage code into line subsequent to the court decision.)
