Schwarzennegger (Proposition 8) Trial in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California. Proposition 8 (or the California Marriage Protection Act) was a ballot proposition and constitutional amendment passed in November 2008, that added a new provision to the California Constitution, which provides that "only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California." In the Perry v. Schwarzennegger trial Proposition 8 was eventually overturned and ruled Unconstitutional by Chief Justice Judge Vaughn R. Walker. Written by
