Experts: Suits follow gay-wed procession
By Elisabeth J. Beardsley
A tidal wave of gay-marriage litigation will drop on courthouses across the nation once gay couples start marrying in Massachusetts in two weeks, experts say.
     
     Most observers expect the controversy to immediately spread beyond the Bay State's borders, as gay couples move to other states and file lawsuits to force recognition of their marriages.

     ``The litigation is going to be sweeping and probably endless, at least until every state is on the same page,'' said Lawyers Weekly USA editor Paul Martinek.

     The federal ``defense of marriage act,'' which limits marriage to one man and one woman, has never been challenged in the courts.
