Lawsuit Filed to Block Domestic Partner Act

Opponents of laws extending marriage rights to same-sex couples have filed a lawsuit against Governor Davis and other state officials to stop the bill from taking effect.

Campaign for California Families filed the lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court. The suit claims that AB-25 and the Domestic Partner Act, which grant rights to registered domestic partners, violate a state-approved proposition.

Voters in 2000 approved Proposition 22, which confirmed that “only marriage between a man and a woman is valid and recognized in the state of California.”

The lawsuit seeks the nullification of AB-25 and an injunction to prevent the Domestic Partner Act from being implemented. A similar lawsuit was filed earlier this week in Sacramento.
