The California Supreme Court has denied the Prop 8 proponents’ petition to mandate enforcement of Prop 8 due to legal technicalities in California law. The court’s docket says: “The petition for a writ of mandate is denied.” ProtectMarriage had argued that the federal order in the case only applied narrowly to the two couples, that all other counties in California were obligated to enforce Prop 8, and other issues that would have led to enforcing Prop 8 across California, except for two counties. The state had argued that the petition was an attempt to make changes to a federal court’s order in California state courts, a move that is not permitted by the federal Constitution.

The court also agreed to dismiss San Diego County Clerk Ernest Dronenburg’s petition after he requested dismissal earlier this month.
