(San Francisco, CA, June 12, 2008)—The petition filed by the Campaign is frivolous and will have no effect. The California Supreme Court held that gay and lesbian couples have a fundamental right to marry and denied the Campaign’s petition for a stay. The court of appeal is bound by the California Supreme Court’s ruling and does not have authority to stay the decision. This is a non-event, and we are delighted that loving, committed gay and lesbian couples and their families will be celebrating marriages in California next week.

The National Center for Lesbian Rights is a national legal organization committed to advancing the civil and human rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people and their families through litigation, public policy advocacy, and public education.
