Opponents of gay marriage file bill to remove SJC chief justice

The Associated Press
BOSTON -- Legislative opponents of gay marriage have filed a bill seeking to remove Supreme Judicial Court Justice Margaret Marshall from the bench, blaming her for the decision that paved the way for same-sex marriage in Massachusetts.

The sponsor of the bill, state Rep. Philip Travis, D-Rehoboth, said he believes Marshall had already made up her mind before hearing the case and pressured other justices to go along with her decision.

"I think we should go after the person who was the source of the problem," Travis said Tuesday. He said he filed the bill on the Friday before the ruling took affect on May 17.

The bill is similar to another proposal that targets all four justices who voted to legalize gay marriage.
