Ernest Dronenburg, San Diego’s County Clerk, has withdrawn his petition to the California state supreme court asking for clarification on enforcement of Prop 8. Dronenberg had filed his petition shortly after ProtectMarriage.com, the official proponents of Prop 8, filed their own similar one. The official proponents’ petition is still pending:

San Diego County Clerk Ernest Dronenburg has withdrawn a petition asking the state Supreme Court to rule on whether same-sex marriages have truly become legal in California.

In a news release sent out Friday afternoon, Dronenburg said he canceled the petition because it covered the same ground as another petition filed earlier to the court.

The first petition was filed July 12 by Dennis Hollingsworth and others. Hollingsworth, a former state senator, has worked with ProtectMarriage.com in support of Proposition 8, which amended the state Constitution to define marriage as a union between a man and a woman.

Dronenburg said he was withdrawing his petition, which he filed July 19, to speed up the legal process that he hopes will clarify the current legal standing of Prop. 8.

California’s Attorney General Kamala Harris had argued in legal filings that the San Diego petition and the proponents’ petition were identical. The state asked the California Supreme Court to decline to stay marriages while deciding on the petition, and to deny the petition outright. Marriages are allowed to proceed while the state supreme court is considering the merits of the proponents’ petition.

    It stretches over a wide area, so it’s a good idea to take a mini-vacation on the
    weekend or use a weeks worth of summer leave
    and follow the team red sox to some degree.

    An increasing body of university analysis suggests that gaming increases imagination, decision-making and understanding. The certain advantages are extensive ranging, from better hand-eye management in surgeons to vision changes that enhance night driving capacity.People who performed action-based video and computer online games made judgments 25% more rapidly compared to some people without affecting exactness, based on research. In fact, the most skillful game enthusiasts will make choices and do something on them up to six instances a second—four times more quickly when compared with the majority, other scientists discovered. Moreover, practiced video game competitors will pay attention to above 6 things at once without being unclear, when compared with the four that somebody can generally consider, claimed University of Rochester analysts. The scientific studies were executed by themselves of the businesses that sell video and computer online games
