  •   Legal scholar Eugene Volokh writes: "PHYLLIS SCHLAFLY SAID IT WOULD BE LIKE THIS: A California trial court has just held that the California opposite-sex-only marriage requirement is unconstitutional; and part of its argument — though only part — was that it violated the ban on sex discrimination in the state constitution, since the opposite-sex-only rule necessarily discriminated based on sex. ... Had the ERA been enacted at the federal level, it would have further raised the bar against sex classifications, and thus made decisions like the California and Massachusetts one more likely. ...

    The California decision — and the Massachusetts decision, and a similar Hawaii decision that has since been reversed by the Hawaii voters — shows us that ... the anti-ERA forces, much as I probably disagree with most of them on many things, have proved prescient." 3-14-05
