Marriage Will Revisit the CA Supreme Court

[SACRAMENTO, Calif., Nov 19, 2008 -- The official proponents of Proposition 8 and - Yes on 8, the campaign committee responsible for its enactment by voters, today said it is "profoundly gratified" that the California Supreme Court granted all their requests by agreeing to accept original jurisdiction of three cases challenging the measure's validity, granted their request to intervene in the cases as Real Parties in Interest, denied the request of others to delay implementation of Proposition 8, and refused to allow outside groups to directly participate in the litigation.

"This is a great day for the rule of law and the voters of California," said General Counsel Andy Pugno. "This order means that voters will get their day in court and ensures that voters will have a vigorous defense of Proposition 8 before the California Supreme Court. We are profoundly gratified with the Court's order and are confident that Proposition 8 will be upheld."]

Well, at least there's that. Now the citizens of this nation will hold their collective breath while we wait to see if a single digit overturns the will of seven digits...again.
