Prop 8 again ruled unconstitutional

In a landmark ruling, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has just upheld the lower court ruling by Vaughn Walker that the voter initiative to deny same sex couples in California the right to marry violates the Constitution.

By using their initiative power to target a minority group and withdraw a right that it possessed, without a legitimate reason for doing so, the people of California violated the Equal Protection Clause [of the federal Constitution]. We hold Proposition 8 to be unconstitutional on this ground. [The whole ruling is posted at Prop8trialtracker.com.]
