California's Prop 8 Update

By Suzanne Ito, ACLU at 3:53pm

Yesterday, the ACLU, along with Lambda Legal and the National Center for Lesbian Rights, filed a lawsuit in the California Supreme Court, urging the court to invalidate Prop. 8. (You legal wonks can check out the complaint here.)

We also issued a press release yesterday reminding everyone that California Attorney General Jerry Brown has stated that if Prop. 8 does pass, the state will still honor the marriages of same-sex couples wed between June 16, 2008 and passage of Prop. 8.

More news to come on this, for sure.
