SAN FRANCISCO – Chief Judge Vaughn R. Walker today set a trial date of January 11th for the federal challenge to Proposition 8 led by the American Foundation for Equal Rights and attorneys Theodore Olson and David Boies.
Foundation Board President Chad Griffin said he was pleased with the Judge’s order.
“Proposition 8 compels our government to treat people differently under the law simply because of who they are. That injustice cannot be corrected fast enough,” Griffin said.
The decision whether or not to televise the trial has yet to be made by U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker.
