The California Supreme Court has voted six to one to review legal challenges to Proposition 8, which bans same-sex marriage. Gay rights advocates are arguing that the measure is a constitutional revision, which can be placed to the voters only after a two-thirds vote in the Legislature or a constitutional convention, as opposed to a more limited revision. The Court will review the measure as early as March, but refused to allow gay marriages to resume in the interim. The dissenting judge is a reliable advocate of gay rights, who voted to allow gay marriage in the court’s original four to three decision. Her dissent is troubling for those hoping to overturn the measure.
