9th Circuit Rejects Petition For Review Of Proposition 8 Ruling
The 9th Circuit Court Of Appeals has rejected a petition by supporters of Proposition 8 to have the earlier ruling by a 3 judge panel reviewed by the court at large. The ruling had struck down Proposition 8 as violating the rights of gay and lesbian couples.
The court also kept the current stay on the ruling in place for 90 days to give the opportunity for an appeal to the US Supreme Court.
If the appeal is not filed then the ruling will go into effect after the 90 days.
