Tax Prof Wedding: Pat Cain - Jean Love

Pat_cain_3Congratulations to Tax Prof Pat Cain and her long time partner Jean Love, who were married on October 4, 2008 in San Francisco.  Pat previously taught at the University of Texas School of Law for 17 years (1974-1991) and at University of Iowa School of Law for 16 years (1991-2007), before moving with Jean to Santa Clara University School of Law in 2007 as the Inez Mabie Distinguished Professor of Law.  I got to know Pat as a contributor to our Tax Stories book; her chapter is one of my favorites -- Ch. 9: The Story of Earl: How Echoes (and Metaphors) from the Past Continue to Shape the Assignment of Income Doctrine.  (Pat and Jean are pictured in front of the Empress Hornblower on which they got married in San Francisco Bay; their Iowa friends and colleagues celebrated at the same time at a party hosted by Bill and Barby Buss at their home, dubbed the Empress Cornblower for the evening.)

Pat Cain was my Property professor many years ago. I'm embarrassed to say how poorly I did in her course, particularly since I now teach in a property-related field myself, but I'll always remember her discussion of Pierson v. Post on my first day of law school. Congratulations!

You know, when we learned about Loving v. Virginia in law school, our professor said that it was the perfect test case. How could the court rule against LOVING in a marriage rights case?

Perhaps we have found our perfect couple to bring a federal challenge to marriage laws (and state amendments) that discriminate against same sex partners?
