BREAKING NEWS: Proposition 8 Back on Track

The California Supreme Court issued its advisory opinion which stated that the proponents of Proposition 8 have a standing to appeal. The lawsuit can now continue within the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, and expectations are high for a speedy and efficient ruling. View the complete Supreme Court ruling here.

Though progress on the Proposition 8 trail has been in hibernation for several months, we have not forgotten the monumental importance of this legislation. If the Ninth Circuit Court rules in favor of marriage equality, California will set an amazing precedent for future marriage equality cases around the country.

The motion which asks the courts to publically reveal the original video from the Prop 8 trail is already being fast-tracked. Oral arguments before the court will be heard Thursday, December 8 at 2:30 p.m. (PST).
