Gov and AG will not be forced to appeal Prop 8 decision

Timothy Kincaid

September 2nd, 2010

As anticipated, the Pacific Justice Institute’s lawsuit to force Governor Schwarzenegger and Attorney General Brown to appeal Judge Walker’s decision in Perry v. Schwarzenegger was laughed out of court. Okay, I don’t know that anyone laughed (they may have just rolled their eyes) but is was “summarily denied”.

does this mean that gay people can finally marry? or is there more legal precedings that are going to go on?

No. The 9th Circuit will decide (probably in November) whether the supporters of Proposition 8 have standing to appeal. If they do not, the proponents will request that the Supreme Court overrule the 9th Circuit.

If both courts find that they do not have standing, then same-sex marriages will resume in California. If either court rules that they do have standing, then the 9th will hear their appeal.
