Professor Joslin Comments on Prop. 8 for Christian Science Monitor

Professor Courtney Joslin commented for the Christian Science Monitor on the California Supreme Court arguments on whether sponsors of Proposition 8 have standing to appeal last year's federal court ruling that overturned the same-sex marriage ban initiative. The U.S. Supreme Court has never directly decided whether the official proponents of an initiative necessarily have standing to defend a measure if no public official is willing to do so, Joslin stated.

Professor Joslin is a scholar in the field of family and relationship recognition, with a particular focus on same-sex and non-marital couples.
