Rampant misreporting by the media has claimed that the Supreme Court struck down the Golden State’s marriage amendment in Perry v. Brown. In fact, the high court found only that the proponents of the voter approved traditional marriage law lacked standing to defend the case. This holding erased the Ninth Circuit’s split decision overturning the law. As a result, technically the ruling by Judge Walker only covers the four plaintiffs in the case. The San Francisco Chronicle first reported that the San Francisco Judge is a homosexual.
