Perry v. Schwarzenegger - American Foundation for Equal Rights

Success!  On August 4, 2010, the United States District Court for the Northern District of California found that Prop. 8 is unconstitutional.  Check back soon for detailed legal analysis of the court’s ruling.
An integral part of our nation’s character and laws is the principle that all Americans are entitled to be treated equally by their government. And more than 30 years ago, in its landmark decision to strike down bans on interracial marriage, the Supreme Court of the United States recognized that marriage is one of the basic civil rights of man.
Proposition 8 amended the California Constitution to eliminate marriage rights for same-sex couples. As a result, the State of California is in violation of the United States Constitution, the “Supreme Law of the Land.” The United States Constitution guarantees every American basic fundamental rights, including the right to equal protection under the law.
