Federal judge declines to dismiss Prop. 8 lawsuit

A federal judge in San Francisco today refused to dismiss a lawsuit challenging Proposition 8, California's ban on same-sex marriage.

U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker announced his decision early this afternoon following a morning hearing. The case will now go to trial on Jan. 11.

The lawsuit was filed in May by a lesbian couple from Berkeley and a gay couple from Burbank who claim the state law violates their federal constitutional rights.
