Prop 8 Gay Marriage Ban Goes to Calif. Supreme Court

The California Supreme Court has agreed to rule on the legality of Proposition 8, the ballot initiative that robbed gay and lesbian couples of marriage rights.

The Court "refused to permit gay weddings to resume pending a final decision."

Over the past century, the California Supreme Court has heard nine cases challenging legislative acts or ballot initiatives as improper revisions. The court eventually invalidated three of the measures, according to the gay rights group Lambda Legal.
