In Re Marriage Cases

  • In Re Marriage Cases (2007)

    In the case In re Marriage Cases before the California Supreme Court, DREDF joined the “separate is not equal” brief filed on behalf of a number of civil rights groups, including gay and disability rights advocacy organizations. In 2006, the California Court of Appeal overturned an earlier state Superior Court ruling holding that California’s law prohibiting same-sex couples from marrying discriminates on the basis of sex and violates the fundamental right to marry. Consistent with DREDF’s mission, the brief includes arguments regarding constitutional standards for civil rights protection in California.
