CA Supreme Court case concerning Prop. 8 moves forward without stay

ADF official comment
Published On: 10/18/2017

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Austin R. Nimocks regarding the decision of the California Supreme Court in Hollingsworth v. O’Connell not to issue a stay while the lawsuit seeking clarity for county clerks on Proposition 8 moves forward:


“Everyone on all sides of the marriage debate should agree that the legal process must be followed. Although we would have preferred for the California Supreme Court to issue a stay so that the state’s marriage amendment would be respected sooner rather than later, the proponents of Proposition 8 will continue to urge the court to uphold the rule of law. We remain hopeful that the court will recognize that Proposition 8 remains the law of the land in California and that county clerks must continue to enforce it.”
