10/30/08 San Diego Union-Tribune: "Today the NO on Prop 8 campaign released a rare joint statement signed by 59 distinguished law professors concluding that the Prop. 8 campaign's legal arguments are false ... The list of scholars include Erwin Chemerinsky, the Founding Dean of the University of California School of Law; Kathleen Sullivan, Former Dean of Stanford Law School; and Paul Brest, Dean Emeritus of Stanford Law School."
Maureen Dolan and Jessica Garrison of the LA Times report:
"But after researching the issue, New York University law professor Kenji Yoshino, who favors same-sex marriage, concluded that the U.S. Constitution would offer few protections to existing gay marriages if Proposition 8 passed."
Santa Clara University Law Professor Gerald Uelmen expresses his view that such marriages would not remain valid if the voters pass Proposition 8.
