ACS/Lambda Proposition 8 Review

Professor Marcosson will discuss the legal challenges to California's Proposition 8 Constitutional Amendment to eliminate the rights of same sex couples to marry. Discussion will focus on the February 7, 2012 Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals decision affirming the Perry v. Schwarzenegger judgment declaring Proposition 8 unconstitutional, in violation with the Equal Protection Clause, and possible outcomes if the case is argued before the Supreme Court. Lunch will be provided from Jason's Deli.
