Appearing on MSNBC's The Rachel Maddow Show, Theodore Olson, former U.S. solicitor general and co-lead plaintiff's attorney in the Prop. 8 case, called Tuesday's ruling "very broad," despite the Ninth Circuit's narrow application of its decision to California and not other states over which it has jurisdiction.

Speaking about marriage equality, Olson said, "The right exists in many other states now, and people are attempting to take that right away." But the Ninth Circuit ruling articulated that "once you grant those rights ... you cannot take [them] away from those individuals without violating the constitution," he said.
