Closing Arguments in the Prop 8 Federal Trial delivered today

“This trial clearly demonstrated Proposition 8’s denial of equal protection under the law,” said Chad Griffin, Board President of the American Foundation for Equal Rights. “No law may violate the U.S. Constitution. Our nation’s Founders established the courts to protect every American’s constitutional rights against discriminatory laws. This case is not about special rights for Kris, Sandy, Paul and Jeff. Rather, it’s about ensuring they simply have the same rights as every American.”
