California Supreme Court Declares Gay Marriages Void

I'll have more on this later, after I've had time to read the opinion, which is courtesy of Fox News. The super-quick summary is that Gavin Newsom, mayor of San Francisco, does not have legal authority to decline to enforce a statute because he personally feels it is unconstitutional. I kind of agree and kind of disagree, but that will have to wait for an update. The opinion is 118 pages long in .pdf format. I'm sure it will be much shorter on Lexis or Westlaw, but it's not available there yet.
