9th Circuit Finds Prop 8 Violates Constitution

February 7th, 2012

The opinion is here. A “Case Summary” prepared by “court staff for the convenience of the reader” is available here (a syllabus kinda?).

Proposition 8 serves no purpose, and has no effect, other than to lessen the status and human dignity of gays and lesbians in California, and to officially reclassify their relationships andĀ familiesĀ as inferior to those of opposite-sex couples.
