"Hawaii Governor Linda Lingle has aligned herself with another Governor, George Wallace, who also believed discrimination can and should be perpetrated under the law. Our Constitution guarantees equal protection under the law to every American, and our courts exist to protect those rights when they are violated. The Perry v.Schwarzenegger trial is a step toward affirming those rights."

-- The American Foundation for Equal Rights President Chad Griffin. AFER is the group that has sued to overturn Prop 8 in federal court.
