The Ninth District panel ruled that taking away the existing rights of a minority is not kosher. Read the whole story at Prop8TrialTracker.
The ruling applies only to California’s special circumstances, but if it stands, it could put the kibosh on efforts in states like Iowa and New Hampshire to repeal marriage equality.
The proponents have a week to ask for an en banc review. If they don’t get one, they have 90 days to ask for a Supreme Court review.
Thank you, Ninth Circuit! I really needed some good news today.
