The author focuses on issues related to the constitutionality of gay marriage in California. On May 26, 2009, the voters urged the State Supreme Court to ban gay marriage by law. The court did not agree with the voters, claiming that an unknown guarantee of the right to be married by the state is written in the state constitution. The gay marriage advocates responded to anti-gay marriage supporters by staging wildcat demonstrations and filing a legal case which claimed that an amendment to the constitution is unconstitutional.
