Summary judgment denied in federal challenge to Prop 8
U.S. District Court Judge Vaughn Walker denied the Intervenor-Defendants’ Motion for Summary Judgment in Perry v. Schwarzenegger, the federal court challenge to Proposition 8. Judge Walker denied all of the grounds for summary judgment sought by the Intervenor-Defendants, which keeps the challenge on track toward its set January trial date.
