The plaintiffs in this case are two same-sex couples who challenge a November 2008 voter-enacted amendment to the California Constitution (Proposition 8 (P8)). P8 provides: “Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.”

Plaintiffs allege that P8 deprives them of due process and of equal protection of the laws contrary to the 14th Amend. Judge Walker concludes that: “Plaintiffs have demonstrated that P8 violates their due process and equal protection rights and that they will continue to suffer these violations until state officials cease enforcement of P8.”

Contents of this decision: Background to P8; Procedural History; Case against P8; Defense of P8; Trial Proceed. and Summary of Testimony; Witnesses; Equal Protection; Conclusion.
