LIVE VIDEO: Proposition 8 Plaintiffs React to Ruling

A three-judge panel from the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled today that Proposition 8 is unconstitutional. And the plaintiffs in the California case — Kristin Perry, Sandra Stier, Paul Katami, and Jeff Zarrillo — reacted for the first time to the news in a press conference from Los Angeles earlier today. A second news conference from San Francisco begins at 5 p.m. pacific time.

The American Foundation for Equal Rights, which organized and financed the Prop. 8 legal challenge, sponsored both of the press conferences.
