ABSTRACT
The article reports on a California appeals court ruling against a group of county tax assessors who sued the Board of Equalization (the state tax commission) for issuing a rule granting certain property tax relief to registered same-sex domestic partners. The plaintiffs said the rule, which was ratified by the legislature, violates the state constitution, but the court said the board and the legislature acted within their powers.
