Prop. 8 Overturned - Los Angeles News - The Informer
Breaking. Updates coming:
CNN announced that Prop. 8, California's ban on same-sex marriage, has been overturned by the U.S. Ninth Circuit court of appeals.
It's widely expected that the decision will be appealed, however, all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa issued this statement following Wednesday's ruling:
Today, the sun shines a little brighter on the Golden State. A federal judge has affirmed what a majority of Californians know to be true: that love does not discriminate and that marriage is a civil right, not a privilege reserved for a select class of citizens. The decision handed down today in Perry v. Schwarzenegger reaffirms the notion that separate is never equal.
