Prop 8 Perry v. Schwarzenegger: We Won!

By: Wednesday August 4, 2010 2:15 pm

So, yes — victory. But hate is strong. It may not have prevailed today, but we can certainly count on its being around for a while. Stay safe out there, people: there’s nothing like a successful court battle to bring out the bashers and haters lurking in the underbelly of the American psyche.

Libby II: FDL Goes to the Prop 8 Trial in San Francisco

By: Friday January 8, 2010 11:32 am

Prop 8 Trial thermometerOn Monday, January 11. Bush/Gore 2000 adversaries David Boies and Ted Olson will team up for what is sure to be both a dramatic and historic challenge to California’s Prop 8 ban on same-sex marriage, Perry v. Schwarzenegger. But it won’t be televised live. So just as we were with the Scooter Libby trial, FDL will be there.

We’re going to be sending Marcy Wheeler and David Dayen to San Francisco to cover the trial along with Teddy “San Fran” Partridge (and perhaps a few surprise guests).

Please donate $1 a day to help FDL cover the Prop 8 trial… and beyond.
