Prop 8 Supporters Submit Official Brief to Supreme Court

By Michelle Garcia

Proponents of California's ban on same-sex marriage officially submitted their brief to the Supreme Court Tuesday, urging the court to uphold the vote that constitutionally banned marriage in 2008.

According to Buzzfeed, Proposition 8's backers say that the state's constitution does not "mandate the traditional gendered definition of marriage, but neither does our Constitution condemn it. This Court, accordingly, should allow the public debate regarding marriage to continue through the democratic process, both in California and throughout the Nation."

The Supreme Court is scheduled to hear arguments in Hollingsworth v. Perry March 26, and a decision is expected by the end of June.
