ABSTRACT
The article reports on the decision of the California Supreme Court to invalidate the state's ban on same-sex marriage on May 15, 2008. The court ruled that preventing gay couples from marrying violates the state constitution. In a 120-page opinion, the majority of the court invalidated Proposition 22, approved by voters in 2000, defining marriage as a union between a man and a woman. Same-sex marriage opponents have submitted more than 1.1 million signatures for certification for a proposed initiative that would nullify the court's decision.
