Judges Say Hell No To Revisiting Their Strike Down Of California’s Gay Marriage Ban
Proposition 8 in California, the voter-approved amendment to ban same-sex marriage in the state, was deemed unconstitutional in February. But upon being given the opportunity to revisit that decision today, federal judges gave a resounding “thanks, but no thanks” to the thought of spending even an iota more of their time on that nonsense.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit issued a brief order saying the same-sex marriage case failed to get the majority vote needed to convene a so-called â€œen bancâ€ panel, which usually consists of 11 judges.
Those in favor of keeping same-sex families from having their unions recognized by the law reportedly have 90 days to get their bigotry over to the Supreme Court to overturn the ruling –Â and just in time for an election! But regardless of what happens by November, the strike down on DOMA reveals that the federal clock is already ticking on an issue that continues to impact many families.
