Ninth Circuit to rule Tuesday on constitutionality of Prop 8

The U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals is set to issue a ruling on Tuesday by 10 am Pacific Time on the constitutionality of California’s Proposition 8, according to the court website.

The lawsuit, Perry v. Brown, came to the appellate court on appeal after U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker ruled against the same-sex marriage ban in 2010.

  • It’s good that the 9th Circuit Court will be issuing their ruling tomorrow. This case has been on the table for a long time, and the Californian people have been anxcious about its outcome. Regardless of how one may feel about the constitutionality of prop. 8, the likely ruling is that it will not stand. Marriage right for gay people will.
