The California Supreme Court, by an unanimous vote, declined today to hear or take action on an lawsuit that sought to block state ballot Proposition 8, the measure that would outlaw same-sex marriage.
The high court denied, without comment (pdf), the writ of mandate filed by Prop 8 foes, which included the San Francisco-based National Center for Lesbian Rights.
Here's (doc) the brief press release from the court.
The NCLR and fellow groups had argued that Proposition 8 would constitute a revision of the state Constitution, rather than an amendment, and would therefore require passage by the Legislature.
