Proposition 8 & the California Supreme Court

The Supreme Court of California has agreed to hear arguments regarding Proposition 8 on the following issues:

(1) Is Proposition 8 invalid because it constitutes a revision of, rather than an amendment to, the California Constitution?

(2) Does Proposition 8 violate the separation-of-powers doctrine under the California Constitution?

(3) If Proposition 8 is not unconstitutional, what is its effect, if any, on the marriages of same-sex couples performed before the adoption of Proposition 8?

The Supreme Court denied a motion to stay the enforcement of Proposition 8 while the case is pending.

All briefs in the matter must be filed by January, 2009, and it is anticipated that arguments could be heard as early as
March, 2009.
