California Supreme Court’s Denial of Stay Ignores the Will of the People
Today, the California Supreme Court denied the Petition for Stay and for Rehearing in the California marriage cases.
The 4-3 decision was split along the same lines as the original May 15 ruling with Chief Justice George and Justices Kennard, Werdegar and Moreno in the majority. Justices Baxter, Chin and Corrigan dissented.
Today’s ruling states that the May 15 "same-sex marriage" decision will become final on June 16, 2008, at 5:00 pm (PT).
The cases now will return to the California Court of Appeal for the Supreme Court’s order to be implemented. Liberty Counsel is considering filing a petition with Court of Appeal requesting a stay pending the outcome of the November vote on the state marriage amendment. The Court of Appeal panel previously upheld the state’s marriage laws.
Denying a stay in light of the certification of the Marriage Protection Act for the November ballot reveals the political agenda of a handful of judges. Judges acting as judges and not as legislators would have granted the stay.
If any same-sex marriage licenses are issued before November, the passage of the constitutional amendment will make them invalid and invisible.
