San Francisco supervisors Tom Ammiano and Bevan Dufty have introduced a resolution urging the city attorney's office to draft legislation allowing domestic partnership status for those whose marriages were invalidated by the state Supreme Court on August 12. According to the County Clerk's office, domestic partnerships allow couples many legal, medical, and work benefits. They have also proposed the creation of a "marriage equality fund", where couples could donate their marriage license refunds. Those donations (nearly $400,000) would be used to cover the legal costs San Francisco will acquire while challenging the Supreme Court's ruling. This is just the sort of news SFist wanted to hear. We were outraged to hear last week's ruling. We feel this is a great way to show this city won't back down--that the couples still deserve to be recognized.
