The Mexican Supreme Court rules on marital rape

The Mexican Supreme Court has overturned a 1994 decision and now declares that forced intercourse in a marriage is rape.

Guau. Progress.

I don't get why the NY times is saying this just happened yesterday.

My guess is that the article I linked to 2 weeks ago says the SCJ *will* establish (in the future tense) this decision and maybe it only really established it when the paperwork was formally filed (yesterday?).

Either that, or the NYT staff is clueless.
