Our Nation’s Highest Court
Proposition 8 has been ruled unconstitutional twice. The Federal District Court and Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals both ruled that there is no legitimate reason to deny gay and lesbian Californians the fundamental freedom to marry. Now AFER’s federal constitutional challenge is in its final stage.
AFER’s distinguished attorneys, Ted Olson and David Boies, made the case before the Supreme Court that every American is guaranteed the freedom to marry the person they love on Tuesday, March 26. They represent two couples, Kris Perry & Sandy Stier and Paul Katami & Jeff Zarrillo, who, like so many Americans, want the freedom to marry the person they love.
