A landmark day at the Beverly Hills Courthouse. Diane Olsen and Robin Tyler became the first same sex couple to wed in California. The California Supreme Court overturned the marriage ban which Olsen and Tyler were plaintiffs in. The couple wed in a Jewish style ceremony on the courthouse steps at 5:01 pm when the overturned ban took affect. It was a mostly ruckus affair complete with rabid members of the media, religious zealots, and members of the family.
