SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — After an exchange of vows and rings, Attorney General Kamala Harris says Kris Perry and Sandy Stier are “Spouses for Life”
Just about an hour after the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals dissolved the stay preventing same-sex marriages in California, the two plaintiffs in the landmark case tied the knot at San Francisco City Hall.
Perry and Stier filed the initial lawsuit against Prop 8, the voter backed initiative that limited marriage to a man and a woman. Wednesday the Supreme Court said the supporters of Prop 8 didn’t have standing to appeal, meaning retired Judge Vaughn Walker’s decision that the measure was unconstitutional stands.
