California Prop 8 declared unconstitutional again

A federal appeals court Tuesday overturned California Proposition 8 on narrow grounds, ruling that Californians took away a right from a minority group without justification when they approved the 2008 ban on same-sex marriage.

"The people may not employ the initiative power to single out a disfavored group for unequal treatment and strip them, without a legitimate justification, of a right as important as the right to marry," the court said.

Now the question is, will the U.S. Supreme Court hear the appeal from this decision.
