Ban Is Nullified
SAN FRANCISCO. Oct. 1—<4V-
A California law prohibiting mar-
riage of white persons to those of
Negro, Mongolian or Malayan
blood was thrown out today by
the state supreme court.
The opinion declared that since
the right to marry is the right to
join in marriage with the person
of one's choice, a law prohibiting
a person from marrying a member
of another race restricts his
choice, thereby, restricting his
right to marry.
The court held the law violated
the equal protection of the laws
clause of the U. S', constitution.
The court directed that the Los
Angeles county clerk issue a mar-
riage license, as requested by
Andrea D. Perez, a white woman,
and Sylvester S. Davis, a Negro.
Today's ruling declared “marriage
is something more than a civil
contract subject to regulation by
the state It Is a fundamental right
of free men."
The court split 5 to 2 on the issue.
