Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor Becomes Third SCOTUS Member To Officiate Gay Wedding

Chris Johnson reports at the Washington Blade:

U.S. Associate Justice Sonia Sotomayor officiated on Saturday the wedding of a lesbian couple with a history of LGBT advocacy, the Washington Blade has learned. Sotomayor performed the wedding of Ingrid Duran and Catherine Pino, who are founders of D&P Creative Strategies. The organization seeks to increase the role of corporate, legislative and philanthropic efforts in addressing concerns of Latinos, women and LGBT people. According to one source familiar with the event, the wedding took place in D.C. at Potomac View Terrace. U.S. Treasurer Rosa Gumataotao Rios, Rep. Xavier Beccera (D-Calif.), Rep. Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-Calif.), Rep. Grace Napolitano (D-Calif.) and Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-Ariz.) were present for the ceremony, the source said.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Elena Kagan officiated at same-sex weddings prior to the Obergefell ruling, spurring frenzied and fruitless demands for them to recuse themselves from that case. (Tipped by JMG reader Dwight)
