City of West Hollywood:
Members of the West Hollywood City Council and other representatives from the LGBT community will hold a news conference to discuss the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to grant a writ of certiorari to determine the constitutionality of California’s Proposition 8. The news conference will be held on Friday, December 7, 2012 at 2 p.m. at West Hollywood City Hall, 8300 Santa Monica Boulevard.
The Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) has announced that it has granted a writ of certiorari, which is a decision by the Supreme Court to hear an appeal on the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeal’s decision in Perry v. Brown which held Proposition 8 unconstitutional. Proposition 8 is the 2008 initiative that banned same-sex marriages in the State of California. If the SCOTUS does not grant a writ of certiorari in Perry v. Brown, it is anticipated that same-sex marriage will be legal in California.
Members of the West Hollywood City Council and other representatives from the LGBT community.
