Equality on Trial: 2023 Update

Equality on Trial (EOT formerly Prop 8 Trial Tracker) was a project of Courage California Institute. It was established to cover the 2009 Perry v. Brown trial Prop 8 Trial Tracker covered the trial live from the courthouse, collected all of the latest motions and court rulings on one site, and documented and responded to right-wing attacks on the process. Re-branded as Equality on Trial, the site covered on-going legal issues pertaining to the LGBTQ community, including state and federal marriage equality cases, challenges to the so-called federal Defense of Marriage Act, and more.

Equality on Trial was sunsetted by Courage California Institute in August of 2023.
