You're invalid. No you are.

kenstarr v. jerry-brown-prop-8

You may have noticed that plenty of folks have not yet taken down their "Yes on 8" or "No on 8" yard signs or peeled off their "8 is Hate" bumper stickers.  That's cuz this thing ain't over.  This slide show was the Courage Campaign's reaction to Ken Starr's from-the-top-rope flying leap into the fight. The former Lewinsky crusader recently became lead counsel in the effort to invalidate the marriages of the more than 18,000 same-sex couples who got legally hitched before Nov. 4.

And in the other corner... California Attorney General Jerry Brown, who made a surprising side-switch last week after examining state precedent and concluding that, "the amendment process cannot be used to extinguish fundamental constitutional rights without compelling justification." He's now asking the state Supreme Court to invalidate the measure.

It's the measure vs. the marriages in an all-out battle for validity. Think they'll put it on pay-per-view?
