Strauss v. Horton

Strauss v. Horton (Cal. 2009): EJS joined over 30 other civil rights organizations, including the Anti-Defamation League, Asian Law Caucus, API Equality, and Chicana Latina Foundation, in an amicus brief to the California Supreme Court in support of petitioners, a group of same-sex couples and municipal entities. Amici argued that the initiative process may not be used to eliminate gay and lesbian Californians’ right to marry. Furthermore, the brief asserted that Proposition 8 was more than a mere caveat to the equal protection rights gays and lesbian Californians otherwise enjoy, and sought to challenge the fundamental principle that all persons are entitled to equal protection of the laws.
