Congressman Jared Polis (D-CO) released the following statement regarding the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals decision declaring unconstitutional California Proposition 8, which outlawed marriage equality. It is now expected that the decision will be appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court.
"No law that denies any American the right to marry the person that they love can be called constitutional, moral or just. Today's decision by the 9th Circuit is a victory for the cause of justice and the ideal that we are all created equal and are all equal before the law. I am hopeful that the Supreme Court will come down on the side of marriage equality and recognize the committed and loving relationships of millions of American couples."
