Gay Rights, Voters' Will

Hosted by

The state constitution promises equal protection to all Californians.  Last summer, the State Supreme Court ruled that means same-sex couples can legally marry.  On Tuesday, the voters passed Proposition 8, which banned same-sex marriage by amending the constitution—or did it?  Yesterday, three separate lawsuits were filed, contending that Prop 8 was not an amendment at all but an illegal revision.
