A decision is expected this afternoon in the trial about Proposition 8, the proposition that wrote a definition of marriage restricted to one man and one woman into the California constitution after voters approved it in November of 2008. The passage of the proposition revoked queer couples ability to get married in the state of California. The court case alleges that Proposition 8 is unconstitutional.
There has been much press and anticipation about this court case, which is expected to be appealed all the way to the Supreme Court regardless of the outcome. So while today’s decision won’t ultimately stand alone, it’s an important first ruling from Judge Walker, and may indicate the direction this court case will go.
MetroWeekly has a good FAQ about the Prop 8 decision and I will be posting as soon as the decision is announced.
Update: There are already rallies planned around the country. Details here.
