Andrew Cuomo 300x225 New York High Court Smacks Down Challenge to Marriage Equality LawThe New York Times reports that the state’s highest court declined to hear a case challenging New York’s marriage equality law. The paper referred to that case as “the only significant legal threat to same-sex weddings in the state,” adding that as far as New York Governor Andrew Cuomo — a strong backer of marriage equality — is concerned, this means the law is here to stay:

“With the court’s decision, same-sex couples no longer have to worry that their right to marry could be legally challenged in this state,” Mr. Cuomo, a Democrat, said in a statement on Tuesday. “The freedom to marry in this state is secure for generations to come.”
