Equality Hawaii member shares thoughts on U.S. Supreme Court ruling

Posted: Updated:

(HawaiiNewsNow) - The U.S. Supreme Court in a 5-4 vote struck down the Defense of Marriage Act Wednesday. The court also declined to rule on Proposition 8 -- a California law banning same sex marriages -- and sent it back to the Ninth Circuit appellate court with instructions for dismissal, effectively making the law invalid. Jacce Mikulanec, member of Equality Hawaii -- an organization dedicated to securing equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people-- joins Grace and Steve at the news desk to give his thoughts.
