California marriage update

The New York Times reported last week that California is looking into whether the Mormon Church failed to report in-kind contributions to the Yes on Prop 8 campaign.

The Los Angeles Times reported that pro- and anti-equality groups are preparing for marriage to be an issue in California's 2010 judicial retention election, and for a possible initiative to repeal Prop 8.

Reuters reports on the concerns of civil rights groups representing racial and ethnic minorities that a decision to uphold Prop 8 would have effects far beyond LGBT rights. These groups have filed a brief supporting the Propr 8 challenges with the California Supreme Court.

At Bilerico: Is New York's new Democratic state senate majority backing away from a marriage equality bill, which civil rights advocates hoped to see introduced next year?
