Prop 8 Plaintiffs File for Preliminary Injunction

AFER and the plaintiffs challenging Prop 8 file a motion with the district court for a preliminary injunction prohibiting the law’s enforcement.  The plaintiffs argue that they are likely to succeed in their challenge claiming that Prop 8 violates the Fourteenth Amendment’s Due Process and Equal Protection Clauses since it discriminates against gays and lesbians based on their sexual orientation.  They argue that Prop 8 harms them each day that it prohibits them to marry, and claim that it is in the public interest to block Prop 8 from having an effect while the trial proceeds.
