CA Supreme Court Denies Bigots Last Last Last Ditch Effort To Stop Same Sex Marriages

LOSER

Bloomberg reports that the last, last ditch effort by California anti-gay bigots to stop same-sex marriage has failed and that he California Supreme Court has rejected a petition from Prop 8 backers asking it to halt same-sex marriages.

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.

Its not quite clear if there are any legal avenues left for Prop 8 supporters to follow.

Let’s hope not.
