On Friday, June 26, the Supreme Courte ruled that same-sex marriage was legal nationally. The Pittsburgh Business Times reported that the 5-4 vote “determined that states do not have any legitimate reason not to allow same-sex couples to wed.”

The legal and civil rights landmark ruling has “been a long time coming,” Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney's Mariah L. Passarelli told the publication.

Asked whether she believes the decision will be challenged, Mariah said, “We will not see another 14th amendment attack any time soon, but the composition of the court is bound to change and you might see marriage equality attacked on another basis,” she said. “But having read Justice (Anthony) Kennedy’s opinion, I can’t imagine it.”
