The state Supreme Court will issue its decision at 10 a.m. on the constitutionality of the November ballot measure that reinstated a ban on same-sex marriage. Also to be determined: whether an estimated 18,000 same-sex marriages will continue to be recognized by the state. From the LAT:
Chief Justice Ronald M. George and Justice Joyce L. Kennard will cast key votes in the case. They were part of the four-judge majority that gave gays the right to marry last May, but both indicated at oral argument that they were not persuaded the measure was unconstitutional.
During oral argument in March, every justice expressed support for upholding existing marriages. Justice Carlos M. Moreno indicated he believed Proposition 8 was an illegal revision, indicating he would dissent on that question.
Whatever the outcome, you should expect lots of reaction - and likely protests from whichever group is on the losing side.
