2009 Decision Upholding Prop 8 Deeply Wrong, Article Argues

We’re right/We’re free/We’ll fight/You’ll see

Pardon the shameless self-promotion, but I just wanted to note that my article “Equality’s Centrality: Proposition 8 and the California Constitution” has been published by the Southern California Review of Law and Social Justice in Volume 19 Number 1 (Winter 2010), available here.   The piece analyzes text, history, precedent, and political theory to conclude that the California Supreme Court should have held in Strauss v. Horton that Prop 8 was a profound revision to the state constitution that could not be adopted via the initiative process.  Soon additional articles from this symposium issue by National Center for Lesbian Rights Legal Director Shannon Minter, University of Miami law professor Frank Valdes, and USC law graduate Joyce Hahn will also be available online.
