Prop. 8 Ruled Unconstitutional in California

A federal judge has struck down Prop. 8, a California ban on same-sex marriages, ruling it unconstitutional.

This is a key victory to gay rights advocates but it should be assumed that this fight will most likely reach the U.S. Supreme Court, eventually.

Thoughts on the ruling?

From CNN:

Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker found in his ruling that the ban violated the Constitution’s equal protection clause under the 14th Amendment.

The closely watched case came some two years after Californians voted to pass Proposition 8, which defined marriage as a union between a man and a woman.

Neither opponents nor supporters of same-sex marriage said before the ruling that it would likely be the last.
