Woo v. Lockyer

  • Woo v. Lockyer (2006)

    DREDF signed on to an amicus brief with a broad coalition of civil rights groups in same-sex marriage cases that are currently pending in the intermediate California appellate court, First Appellate District, Division 3. Woo v. Lockyer is a consolidation of six cases that arose out of or were prompted by the San Francisco marriages in 2004. The case presents lines of argument relevant to DREDF’s mission, offering reasoning regarding appropriate constitutional and public policy standards for civil rights protection in California, including references to authority in support of strong state disability rights protections.
