    to have these state's anti gay laws ruled unconstitutional by a Federal Court.

        A longer term strategy to attack the anti gay portions of these state Constitutions could quickly develop...

        It seems to me a much faster solution than having groups within the states slog the long route judicially.  Also reinforces the Federal Law primacy narrative.
