The California Supreme Court has announced that it will rule Tuesday on three cases challenging the constitutionality of Proposition 8, the measure voters passed to ban gay marriage
The opinion will be released at 10 a.m. Tuesday, the High Court announced today.
Proposition 8 passed last Nov. 4 with about 52 percent of the vote. It changes California’s constitution with a simple declaration that only a marriage between a man and a woman is legal and valid in the state.
The court has been very quiet and so have court pundits. I would expect that had the Justices decided to overturn the voter approved Proposition 8 and thus legalize gay marriage in California that there would have been some timely leaks.
It has been anticipated for months since the oral arguments that the California Supreme Court will declare Proposition 8 (which restored the tradtional definition of marriage (one man and one woman) to the California Constitution) constitutional.
Flap can count as well. Three California Supreme Court Justices that opposed gay marriage plus Justice Kennard (who refused to sign the order and voted to deny the petitions) equals four votes upholding the Proposition and the traditional definition of marriage.
Flap bets the final vote will be 6-1 with Moreno dissenting to uphold Proposition 8 simply because a MORON would have to rule this is a revision of the Constitution and not an amendment.
