“After years of struggle, the U.S. Supreme Court today has made same-sex marriage a reality in California. In light of the decision, I have directed the California Department of Public Health to advise the state’s counties that they must begin issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples in California as soon as the Ninth Circuit confirms the stay is lifted,”
- Governor Brown.
The ruling states the people who brought this case had no legal standing to bring the case to the Supreme Court. It clears the way for same-sex marriages to resume in California.
The group that fought for Prop 8 said it was saddened and disappointed with the ruling.
