Hollingsworth v. Perry refers to a series of United States federal court cases that legalized same-sex marriage in the State of California. The case began in 2009 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, which found that banning same-sex marriage violates equal protection under the law. This decision overturned ballot initiative Proposition 8, which had banned same-sex marriage. After the State of California refused to defend Proposition 8, the official sponsors of Proposition 8 intervened and appealed to the Supreme Court. It reached the United States Supreme Court as Hollingsworth v. Perry, who held that in line with prior precedent, the official sponsors of a ballot initiative measure did not have Article III standing to appeal an adverse federal court ruling

  • Hollingsworth v. Perry (vorher Perry v. Schwarzenegger und Perry v. Brown) ist ein Verfahren vor dem Obersten Gerichtshof der Vereinigten Staaten zur Verfassungswidrigkeit eines Verbots der gleichgeschlechtlichen Ehe in Kalifornien. Das Verfahren begann mit einer Klage vor dem Bundesbezirksgericht in San Francisco gegen Proposition 8, ein erfolgreiches Referendum, mit dem die Verfassung von Kalifornien so geändert wurde, dass nur noch Ehen zwischen einem Mann und einer Frau staatlich anerkannt würden. In ihrem Antrag behaupten die Kläger, Proposition 8 würde gegen das Rechtsstaatlichkeitsgebot und den Gleichheitsgrundsatz der Bundesverfassung verstoßen. Am 26. Juni 2013 entschied der Supreme Court, dass die Gegner der gleichgeschlechtlichen Ehe in Kalifornien nicht berechtigt waren zu klag
