Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky has issued the attached statement in response to federal court ruling overturning California initiative Prop. 8's same-sex marriage ban as an unconstitutional violation of equal protection and due process. In spring 2008, Yaroslavsky led the drive to implement the California Supreme Court ruling upholding the rights of same-sex couples to marry, a right that was later revoked with the passage of Prop. 8.
