Prop 8 Overturned, What's Next?

August 6, 2010 10:47 a.m.

Proposition 8 -- California's ban on same-sex marriage was overturned Wednesday in federal court. Chief District Judge Vaughn Walker wrote in his ruling "Proposition 8 both unconstitutionally burdens the exercise of the fundamental right to marry and creates an irrational classification on the basis of sexual orientation." Proponents of prop 8 have appealed the ruling to the U.S. 9th circuit court of appeals.
