Connecticut’s Supreme Court officially published its decision legalizing same-sex marriage on Oct. 28.
The move sent the case back to Superior Court in New Haven for 10 days during which the parties can file motions seeking reconsideration of the ruling. It is unlikely the parties will do so.
Once the deadline passes, the Superior Court will issue orders to town clerks and public health departments to begin issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples, probably around Nov. 10.
Same-sex marriage also is legal in California and Massachusetts, as well as in Belgium, Canada, the Netherlands, South Africa and Spain. It will become legal in Norway in January.
