Brown: Invalidate Prop. 8

By Mike Swift

Saying Proposition 8 violates constitutionally protected liberties, Attorney General Jerry Brown on Friday asked the California Supreme Court to strike down the same-sex marriage ban, even as supporters filed a brief that would erase the legal recognition of couples married before Election Day.

In a brief filed with the high court, the state top’s lawyer argues for the first time that Proposition 8 should be invalidated, saying it is ‘inconsistent with the guarantees of individual liberty safeguarded’ by the California Constitution.”
