The California Supreme Court has ruled in Bennett v. Bowen, the case filed seeking to have Proposition 8 removed from the November 4 ballot. (Prop 8 would amend the state constitution to deny same-sex couples the right to marry.) The Court summarily denied the Application for Stay and Petition for Extraordinary Relief, Including Writ of Mandate. See the July 16 entry in the Docket for the case. With that unsurprising development, the battle over the proposed amendment will certainly continue in earnest.
