In The News

Download: Ninth Circuit Decision (PDF, 673.70 K)

In a landmark ruling upholding the constitutional rights of American citizens, the Ninth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals has ruled in favor of the plaintiffs in Perry v. Brown, the historic same-sex marriage civil rights case brought by BSF Chairman David Boies and his one-time courtroom adversary, Ted Olson. 

The opinion, filed February 7, 2012 states that Proposition 8 "serves no purpose, and has no effect, other than to lessen the status and human dignity of gays and lesbians in California, and to officially reclassify their relationships and families as inferior to those of opposite-sex couples." [Download the full opinion above.]

The case arrived in the Ninth Circuit after the plaintiffs achieved a resounding victory in the district court in August 2010; click here to read that opinion. The arguments were televised, and can be viewed on C-SPAN and elsewhere.
