Prop 8 Ruling Tomorrow

Posted by Dan Savage on Wed, May 20, 2009 at 11:53 AM

Those are the rumors, anyway.

Word is that the police departments in San Francisco and San Diego were given a heads up yesterday about a ruling coming down on Thursday—which may explain why these police barricades were dropped off in SF's Castro neighborhood last night, which, depending on how the court rules, is sure to be the site of either protests or celebrations. The CA Supremes are ruling on whether Prop 8, which amended the state's constitution to ban same-sex marriage, was constitutional or not. The court couldn't make that ruling before the amendment was approved and the court has, in the past, tossed other voter-approved amendments to the state constitution.

Fingers crossed.
