CA Supreme Court issues historical ruling on marriage equality
May 15, 2008 at 11:12 AM
The California Supreme Court today issued its ruling in the "In re marriage cases" on the issue of marriage equality for same-sex families. The court found that CA Family Code § 300 and 308.5 which restricted marriage to only heterosexual couples failed to meet the strict scrutiny standard as it did not demonstrate a compelling state interest.
