Prop 8 Trial Testimony Completed

Yesterday was the final day of testimony in the federal trial challenging Prop 8, which took away the right to marry from same-sex couples in November of 2008. The plaintiffs put on a powerful case and made a thorough record of the ways that marriage matters and the reality of discrimination against LGBT folks, while the defendants offered...well, not much. There's nothing I could write that would be as articulate and complete as the daily commentary offered by Shannon Minter, Legal Director of the National Center for Lesbian Rights, at Pam's House Blend blog. The link here will take you to the Day 12 blog post, and at the end of that post are the links for all of the other days. Enjoy.
