Judge Walker Continues Stay on Same-Sex Marriages in California
Judge Walker, who ruled California's Prop 8 unconstitutional last week, has announced that the stay continuing the ban on same-sex marriage in the state will continue. Had Judge walker chosen to lift the stay, same-sex couples would have been allowed to marry effective immediately.
Prior to the announcement of Judge Walker's decision to continue the stay, Board President of the American Foundation for Equal Rights, Chad Griffin, said “The court’s ruling against Proposition 8 should go into effect now. Proposition 8 is unequivocally unconstitutional. It would be a grave injustice to countless Americans for this denial of fundamental rights to last any longer.”
