Professor Pamela S. Karlan is quoted and Professor and former Dean Kathleen M. Sullivan is noted in a Desert Sun article about ballot Proposition 8, a measure to amend the state constitution to ban same-sex marriage:

“As teachers of the law we feel an obligation to speak out when claims are made about the law that are simply and clearly false,” Pam Karlan, the Kenneth and Harle Montgomery professor of Public Interest Law at Stanford Law School, said in a news release.


The No on 8 statement was signed by 59 law professors including Erwin Chemerinsky, the founding Dean of the University of California School of Law and Kathleen Sullivan, former Stanford Law School Dean.
