Passage of Proposition 8


Bench Memos readers are probably already aware of this, but in case anyone has missed it, I’ll point out the good news that California voters passed Proposition 8, which enshrines traditional marriage in the state constitution and overrides the state supreme court’s terrible decision from last May that concocted a right to same-sex marriage.  With a small number of votes still to count, the tally here as I write this is 52.5% yes, 47.5% no.

It’s good to see that California chief justice Ronald George and his fellow miscreants—associate justices Joyce L. Kennard, Carlos R. Moreno, and Kathryn Mickle Werdegar—have been thwarted in their lawless activism.
