Prop 8 Overturned, Rally Planned

Posted By on Wed, Aug 4, 2010 at 2:16 PM

Federal Judge Vaughn Walker today overturned the narrowly voter-approved Proposition 8, finding that the anti-gay marriage ballot measure was unconstitutional under both the due process and equal protection clauses. The ruling is expected to be appealed and will likely end up in the hands of the U.S. Supreme Court.

The local chapter of PFLAG, Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays, will hold a rally at 5:30 p.m. at the county courthouse.

Judge Walker's ruling can be read in its entirety here.
