Proposition 8 Ruling to Be Issued Today

At 10 am Pacific Time today, the California Supreme Court is expected to rule on Proposition 8, the anti-gay marriage ballot measure voted in by Californians last November, as well as on the legal status of the estimated 18,000 couples who were married in California last year, during the period in which same-sex marriage was legal in California. Experts observing the Court expect that, while Proposition 8 will be upheld, the same-sex marriages performed in 2008 will still be recognized by the state.

We’ll post an announcement on the blog as soon as the verdict comes in. No matter what happens today, there will still be more work to be done in forging ahead for LGBT rights.
