Prop 8 case: En banc hearing denied

The federal court case against Prop8 has made another step today.
Aug 2010:  District Court Judge Vaughn Walker finds Prop 8 unconstitutional on broad grounds
Feb 2012:  9th circuit court of appeals upholds decision, but on narrow (CA-specific) grounds (2-1 decision)
June 2012:  9th circuit denies "en banc" review by full court.  (Read order here).
Next stop:  appeal to Supreme Court.

Protect the 4 SCOTUS votes we (presumably) have---maybe get more?

OBAMA 2012!
