A San Diego County Clerk had filed a petition with the California Supreme Court asking the court to temporarily halt same-sex marriages because, well, because stupid.

Just moments ago CASC turned down the request. The case is still to be heard, but same-sex marriages will continue in California until a final decision, which is all but certain to go against said clerk.



No links to the decision yet.  I'll update as soon as I find one, if there is one (it might just be a simple "Request denied" statement).\

Yup. Here's the link. It's just 'request denied.' The case is Dronenburg v Brown.

4:58 PM PT: Heh. Scott Wooledge weighs in appropriately, as is his wont.





 

5:01 PM PT: Here's ScotusBlog on the matter:

For the second time in the past eight days, the California Supreme Court on Tuesday refused to order county clerks across the state to stop issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples.  In a brief order, without a noted dissent, the state court turned down a plea by the clerk of San Diego County to halt all such licensing until the legal status of the “Proposition 8″ ban is further clarified.

The state court is still considering two pleas to keep “Proposition 8″ intact throughout most if not all of California, on the theory that it remains binding in the state despite a federal judge’s 2010 decision striking it down in the case of two same-sex couples.  One of those challenges is by the sponsors of the ballot measure, the other by the San Diego County clerk.   State officials and the clerks of 20 other California counties are resisting those requests.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
