Australian politics: High Court approves same-sex postal survey

Australian politics: High Court approves same-sex postal survey, by Greg Brown.

Here’s what Attorney-General George Brandis told the Senate in informing them of the High Court decision:

I can advise the Senate that in the last few minutes, the High Court has dismissed two sets of proceedings, one brought by Mr Andrew Wilkie and the other brought by Australian Marriage Equality and other parties, designed to prevent the same sex marriage postal survey from proceeding. The effect of the decision of the Court is that there is now no legal impediment to a postal survey proceeding and all Australians having their say on this important social question.
