CA Supreme Court upholds Prop 8

May 26th, 2009 (03:01 pm)

Just got a blip from the ACLU: the California Supreme Court upheld Proposition 8. The challenge had been based on the notion that the change was too fundamental to be an amendment (made by a simple proposition); it had to be a revision (which also requires legislative approval). The court said, no, it's a narrowly tailored change to the equal protection clause. The fact that an equal protection clause is the sine qua non of the rule of law seems to have escaped them.
