The Connecticut Supreme Court ruled yesterday that some legal rights of same-sex couples predate the state’s approval of civil unions in 2005. http://wapo.st/UefLEE 

It’s a first-of-a-kind decision that asserts same-sex couples have always been guaranteed numerous rights under the Constitution.
Connecticut’s highest court ruled Wednesday that some legal rights of same-sex couples predate the state’s approvals of civil unions in 2005 and gay marriage in 2008, a decision that gay rights supporters call the first of its kind in the country.

Organizational sponsor of the federal lawsuit challenging California's Prop. 8. Dedicated to achieving full federal marriage equality.
Introduction

The American Foundation for Equal Rights is dedicated to protecting and advancing equal rights for every American.

As the sole sponsor of the federal court challenge of California’s Proposition 8, known as Hollingsworth v Perry, AFER is leading the fight for marriage equality and equality under the law for every American.

AFER has assembled a legal team led by Theodore Olson and David Boies to demonstrate that Proposition 8 violates the U.S. Constitution by denying millions of people equal protection under the law.
