Supreme Court to Rule on Prop. 8 This Week

Post by Adam Umhoefer, Executive Director

This morning, the Supreme Court did not issue rulings on either Prop. 8 or the so-called Defense of Marriage Act. The Court is expected to schedule additional days this week to hand down decisions, and AFER will keep you updated when we find out more.

Update: The Supreme Court will be issuing decisions tomorrow, Tuesday, June 25 at 10 a.m. ET/7 a.m. PT. Additional days may also be added.

Shortly after the Prop. 8 decision is announced, I’ll be on the steps of the Supreme Court with the two brave couples who challenged Prop. 8 in federal court, Kris Perry & Sandy Stier and Paul Katami & Jeff Zarrillo, and our distinguished lead co-counsel, Ted Olson & David Boies.

RSVP now to watch the free live stream of AFER’s official press conference that will take place after the Supreme Court rules on Prop. 8.

Four years ago, AFER brought together Ted and David—two lawyers from opposite sides of the political spectrum—to challenge Prop. 8 in federal court because the Constitution guarantees every American the fundamental right to marry the person they love.

Now, we are days—if not hours—away from a final decision in our case, and I have great hope that it will be a defining moment in our nation’s journey toward a more perfect union.
