Is Thursday Prop 8’s Big Day?


Could we know the fate of California’s same-sex marriages as early as Thursday?

An email circulating from the Equality Network says they “have it from a very reliable source that the California Supreme Court will announce its decision on Prop 8 on Thursday.” We’ll know whether the info is solid by Wednesday; the Court will post on its website that they’ve reached a decision to be delivered 24 hours later. (Forget who’s ruling? Revisit our introduction to the Court’s justices.)

Of course we’ve been down the road of false date rumors before.

But: Even if it’s not Thursday? It won’t be much longer. The court has 90 days from hearing the case on March 5 to deliver its ruling, which means by June 5 we’ll have a decision.
