Prop 8 Decision

Yesterday Proposition 8 overturned. The complete ruling of the US 9th Circuit Court of Appeals is available as a PDF: KRISTIN PERRY V. EDMUND G. BROWN, Jr..

Any judicial decision quoting Groucho Marx, William Shakespeare, Abraham Lincoln, and Frank Sinatra is fine by me. It’s not too dry. I was a bit surprised that I can’t seem to copy and paste from it, which was a bit frustrating.

Historically I’ve been interested in this issue for a variety of reasons. Here’s some prior posts:

And I recently saw this graphic bouncing around on Facebook and tumblr, and I added it to the smorgasborg: Traditional Marriage Infographic.

I also found this analysis interesting: Proposition 8 Unconstitutional, 9th Circuit Rules: An Analysis by Ari Ezra Waldman.

Not the last we’ll hear about this topic. This feels like something that will go to the Supreme Court. We’ll see.
