Supporters of Proposition 8 went to the California Supreme Court on Friday, asking the court to put an immediate hold on the same-sex couples’ marriages that resumed in California on June 28.
Among the requests made by the opponents of same-sex couples’ marriage rights are “[t]hat this Court issue an immediate stay or injunction, to remain in place during the pendency of these writ proceedings, requiring [state officials] to enforce state law defining marriage as a union between a man and a woman.”
Additionally, following a hearing on the petition, the Proposition 8 supporters ask the court to “order [the state officials] to enforce state law defining marriage as a union between a man and a woman.”
In explaining the reason for making the request, they state:
Petitioners and the citizens of the State of California will suffer irreparable injury and damage unless this Court issues an immediate stay or injunction—to remain in place during the pendency of these writ proceedings—requiring Respondents to enforce state law defining marriage as a union between a man and a woman.
