(JTA) -- Jewish groups on opposite sides of the same-sex marriage debate reacted to a federal court's decision to repeal California's Proposition 8.
Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker on Wednesday overturned Proposition 8, which defines marriage under state law as only between a man and woman, ruling that the law is unconstitutional.
He stated that the freedom to marry is recognized as a fundamental right protected by the due process clause of the U.S. Constitution.
