Prop 8 ruling to come down on Tuesday

From the court’s own website:

The California Supreme Court has announced that it will issue an opinion in three cases challenging the constitutionality of Proposition 8 at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, May 26, 2009.

I’ve previously blogged some analysis of the case. Like most other observers, I expect that the court will reject both the revision/amendment challenge and the fundamental rights challenge, but will not retroactively nullify the 18,000 marriages that took place before November. That would be, in effect, a partial victory for both sides.

I guess we’ll find out one way or another this Tuesday.

  1. I expect that the court will reject both the revision/amendment challenge and the fundamental rights challenge, but will not retroactively nullify the 18,000 marriages that took place before November.
    Such an action does have precedent.

    States that outlawed common law marriages allowed existing common law marriages to stand, while forbidding any future common law marriages.
