Santa Clara County Counsel Ann Ravel: Santa Clara County Fights for Equal Right to Marry

11/12/08 San Jose Mercury News: Santa Clara County Counsel Ann Ravel explains why Santa Clara County has joined the legal challenges to Proposition 8:

"This county is part of the legal challenge to Proposition 8 because we recognize the importance of upholding our most cherished legal principles. If California is allowed to vote our way back into discrimination, we betray the values that are central to our society. The challenge to Proposition 8 upholds the social pact of equality that helped form the foundation of our society and ensures that each of us can count on fair treatment under the law."

The Santa Clara County Counsel's website also has a description of the case it joined, City and County of San Francisco v. Horton, under "Ongoing Cases."
