A Snowbiznow Exclusive!  Hear the inside scoop directly from Judge Vaughn R. Walker as explained to attendees of the Harvey Milk Diversity Breakfast in May, 2013.

In 2010, Judge Vaughn R. Walker began trying Perry v Schwarzenegger, a federal-constitutional challenge to California Proposition 8, a voter initiative constitutional amendment that eliminated the right of same sex couples to marry. On August 4, 2010, Judge Walker ruled that Proposition 8 was unconstitutional “under both the Due Process and Equal Protection Clauses” of the United States Constitution and prohibited its enforcement. That decision was affirmed by the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit on February 12, 2012, and sent to SCOTUS.
