Prop 8 court date

Posted By on Tue, Feb 3, 2009 at 6:33 PM


March 5. That's the day Prop 8 will be challenged in court, according to this story in today's Sacramento Bee .  The controversial state ban on gay marraige, approved by a slim margin on Nov. 4, has been legally challenged by three parties as unconstitutional. Seating's limited in the San Francisco courtroom, so you may want to check with your cable provider to see if you get the California Channel:

To increase public access, the court will allow the California Channel, a public affairs cable network, to provide a live TV broadcast of the session.

The court must issue a decision within 90 days of the start-date. Stay tuned.
