Perry v. Schwarzenegger

In California, the trial over Proposition 8 (Kristin M. Perry v. Arnold Schwarzenegger) will end with final arguments from both sides on June 16, 2010. Proposition 8, which defined marriage as between a man and a woman, was an amendment to the California constitution which passed during the November 2008 elections. During trial, opponents to Proposition 8 argued the ballot initiative revised the constitution in a manner strictly reserved to the state legislature.[1] Whereas, supporters of Proposition 8 argued the institution of marriage may be undermined by this change.[2] FindLaw Sarah 00:05, 15 June 2010 (UTC)
