The Washington Post has the scoop (H/T: Amp). I pointed out earlier that the Court ruling which sparked this series of events is in serious jeopardy due to the make-up of Maryland's Supreme Court, but still, this is a good thing.
The next step? Democratic affirmation of marriage rights. I'm not on-board with those folks who say that judicial decisions protecting gay rights are evil activist monstrousities. That's because I respect the courts for doing their job. But even still, it's qualitatively better for the people and their representatives to stand up themselves and protect the rights of their minorities--not depend on the judiciary to do it. Maryland is actually one of the better targets for democratically voting for marriage rights--though nothing will happen until at least after the 2006 election cycle.
