Ninth Circuit Prop 8 Decision To Come Tomorrow

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit announced today that it will hand down its decision on the constitutionality of the anti-gay Proposition 8 tomorrow. Supporters of the Constitution have good reason to be optimistic. The panel includes Judge Stephen Reinhardt, a well-known judicial liberal, and Judge Michael Daly Hawkins, who compared marriage discrimination to public school segregation during the 2010 oral argument in this case. Whichever side wins tomorrow, the decision is almost certain to be appealed to the Supreme Court.
