    It was and it was appealed.

    no, the state had a responsibility to meet federal standards, according to the challenge (and the ruling) they did not, which makes it a federal issue, and also which brings you up to speed (again?) as to why the appropriate court made this ruling yesterday.

    Are you ready to move on now? or are you still failing to grasp this simple concept?

    If you're really interested in knowing the history of Prop 8 and how it got to the fed courts, then do your homework and come back when you better understand everything that led up to yesterday's decision.

    Start with Prop 22.

    Come PREPARED next time you want to participate, otherwise, please don't come at all because you are not able to intelligently participate.
    You are the one not prepared if you can not back up your claims

    Here it is again.

    Prop 8 was upheld by the State Supreme Court in May of 2009.

    California high court upholds Prop. 8 - Los Angeles Times

    It was then appealed to federal Court.

    And it was then overturned by the federal court.

    They aren't claims. It's called basic civics. Just because you can't grasp these concepts doesn't mean that people here should have to hold your hand. It means that you should do research on an issue before you go into a debate.
