California Supreme Court Refuses To Revive Same-Sex Marriage Ban

California's Supreme Court clearly wants Prop. 8 proponents to take a seat. Or a nap. Whatever. Just move on already!

The Supreme Court has denied the latest attempt by Prop. 8 supporters to halt same-sex marriages in California. 

Bloomberg reports:

The California Supreme Court refused a request by backers of Proposition 8 to reinstate the measure, which banned gay marriage, after they lost a fight in nation’s highest court to block same-sex weddings.

Proposition 8 backers filed a petition July 12 and asked the state’s high court to order county clerks to enforce the gay-marriage ban, claiming the measure was still valid because a U.S. Supreme Court ruling last month didn’t find it was unconstitutional. They asked for an immediate injunction reinstating the law while the lawsuit is pending.

“The request for an immediate stay or injunctive relief is denied,” the court said in a filing today, without giving a reason.


The Court's making it pretty clear that this isn't gonna happen for Prop. 8 supporters. Think they'll finally take the hint??

They are getting desperate. I love how their main argument was that Governor Brown had no authority to order State employees to start issuing licenses. Really? Their boss had no authority to tell them what to do? They are just throwing everything they can at the wall to see what sticks. 

This must be the final nail in the Prop 8 coffin.
