8/4/10

Victory!

...for now. Today, a U.S. judge struck down Proposition 8--the proposition banning gay marriage that passed in 2008--but it is expected to be appealed. The Los Angeles Times reports:

"The ruling struck down Proposition 8 as a violation of federal constitutional guarantees of equal protection and due process... Higher courts defer to trial judges on issues of fact, but still could determine that Walker was wrong on the law. Walker has temporarily stayed his order until Friday, giving Prop. 8 backers time to file appeals and seek a long-term stay. The decision would appear to delay any resumption of gay marriage in the state."
