Here’s a quick update (and great visual) on where we are in the Prop. 8 case.
- A three-judge panel heard our case and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Prop. 8 unconstitutional, affirming the historic 2010 Federal District Court decision.
- Now, all the active judges on the Ninth Circuit are being asked if the case should be reheard en banc by an eleven-judge panel.
[Update: June 4]: The Ninth Circuit will issue a filing tomorrow in our federal challenge to Prop. 8, possibly about whether or not to rehear our case before an 11-judge panel. More information >
