The Big Event

Among activists, tomorrow’s state Supreme Court hearing on Proposition 8 will be something akin to “election night and the Super Bowl,” in the words of the New York Times.

Shannon Minter, legal director for the National Center for Lesbian Rights, will lead the arguments for those who want to see Proposition 8 overturned, while Ken Starr, the dean of Pepperdine, will make the case for letting the initiative stand.

There’s been some speculation that the court could render a decision as soon as tomorrow, even though it has 90 days to issue its ruling. They also are expected to decide on the validity of some 18,000 same-sex marriages that were performed last year. (A personal note: It’ll be a little odd watching the fate of my marriage play out on TV).

Equality California and other orgs are providing coverage on Jumbotrons outside San Francisco City Hall, at the Los Angeles City Hall council chambers and at West Hollywood Park auditorium. It’s also being shown on webcast on the California Channel here.
