Given the reasoning of the Ninth Circuit’s decision and its focus on the specific circumstances that led to the enactment of Prop 8 in California, it may be a tall order for the supporters of Prop 8 to persuade the Supreme Court to take the case.
On the same day that the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals made its big ruling affirming the unconstitutionality of California's Proposition 8, the panel rejected an attempt by Imperial County to intervene in the case.
San Diegans are encouraged to gather at Sixth Avenue and University Avenue to celebrate or protest the ruling, then march to Joyce Beers Uptown Community Center to speak out in favor of the installation of a Pride flag.
