| Prop 8 Challenge Legal Team to Hold Press Conference Following Supreme Court Ruling |
(Los Angeles, May 22, 2008) — The California Supreme Court has announced that it will rule Tuesday, May 26, 2009, on whether Proposition 8, passed by a slim majority of voters on November 4 and eliminating the right of same-sex couples to marry, was a valid amendment to the California Constitution.
At 10:30 a.m. -- approximately a half-hour after the expected posting of the ruling -- attorneys for plaintiff couples and community leaders will hold a news conference to discuss the ruling and what it means for California's same-sex couples and their families, communities of color, and the future of LGBT rights in California. Clergy members will deliver an invocation at 9:45 a.m., shortly before the ruling is announced.
Tuesday, May 26, 2009
9:45 a.m. Clergy Invocation
10:30 a.m. News Conference
Lucy Florence Cultural Center
3351 W. 43rd Street, L.A., CA 90008
Gay rights groups filed Strauss v. Horton, challenging Proposition 8, on November 5. The National Center for Lesbian Rights, Lambda Legal and the ACLU, representing six couples and Equality California, argued that the radical change attempted by Proposition 8 amounts to a "revision" of the California Constitution that cannot be accomplished by a simple majority vote of the electorate unless first approved by a two-thirds vote of both houses of the Legislature. Civil rights groups representing people of color and other minority groups joined the challenge because of a shared concern about protecting the constitutional guarantee of equality.
Local couples and community leaders will be available in English, Spanish, Chinese and Korean for one-on-one interviews.
