Same-sex ethics

In an opinion, the Arizona Judicial Ethics Advisory Committee has advised that a judge cannot refuse to perform same-sex marriages if the judge is willing to perform opposite-sex marriages although a judge may choose not to conduct any marriages at all because performing marriages is a discretionary, not mandatory, function.

This is the first public, formal judicial ethics advisory opinion on the issue.  Others materials are discussed at this previous post.
