What Will Happen If Prop 8 Gets Knocked Down

California would become the nation’s sixth state to legalize same-sex marriage. Gay couples could begin marrying (again) as early as 30 days after the justices finalize their opinion. Same-sex marriage opponents could begin working to place another voter-based initiative on next year’s ballot. And they would try to oust the justices who voted against them, which is possible in California, where justices must obtain “retention votes” every 12 years. [San Francisco Chronicle]
