Proposition 8 gets New Life — Federal Appeals Panel Reinstates It Today pending a New Hearing

A 3-judge “motions panel” today overruled district court Judge Vaughn Walker’s decision to invalidate the voter-approved Proposition 8. It will remain the law of California on marriage pending further Federal review.

Constitutional Law experts have long believed this case will not finally be decided until the 9-member U.S. Supreme Court gives its opinion. California resident Anthony Kennedy may have the deciding vote.

Proposition 8 won a 52% to 48% California victory in November 2008, with critical support coming from Black voters around the state.
