Columbia Law Professor Katherine M. Franke: "Prop 8 Argument - First Impressions"

03/09/09 Gender & Sexuality Law Blog: Law professor Katherine M. Franke is Director of Columbia Law School's Gender & Sexuality Law Program. She says that "[t]his is the first of what I imagine to be three posts with my thoughts about the argument and its implications for the future of the gay rights movement." Her next post will concern the "nomenclature" issue - "marriage" as an official designation - that Chief Justice George and Justice Kennard repeatedly raised, signaling their intent to give constitutional amendment by initiative precedence over their holding in In re Marriage Cases, 43 Cal. 4th 757 (2008).
