Ninth Circuit Rejects Prop 8 Rehearing, Setting Up Appeal to Supreme Court
WASHINGTON - June 5 - Today the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals filed an order denying a request by proponents of Proposition 8 to refer Perry vs. Brown to a larger panel of judges. Below is a statement released by Evan Wolfson, founder and President of Freedom to Marry:
“Today’s decision by the Ninth Circuit to deny a rehearing of Perry vs. Brown brings committed same-sex couples in California one step closer to being able to marry. It's now been three-and-a-half years since the freedom to marry was stripped from from loving and committed same-sex couples. It is long past time for this 'gay exception' to marriage in California to come to an end. Freedom to Marry calls on all Americans to join us in continuing to make as strong a case in the court of public opinion as legal advocates are making in the court of law."
