New Lawsuit Filed Challenging Prop., 8

Several civil rights groups, including the Asian Pacific American Legal Center, the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund, the Equal Justice Society, the California NAACP and the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc., have filed another challenge to Proposition 8. Here's a link to their petition. The brief argues that in order to protect the fundamental rights of all Californians, a higher standard is required to overturn the right to marry. The brief was filed by Raymond C. Marshall of Bingham McCutchen and Prof. Tobias Barrington Wolff of University of Pennsylvania Law School.
