NPR's news blog helpfully notes that this "does not mean that same-sex marriages are suddenly legal again in California," as the court granted Prop 8's supporters 90 to file a petition for writ of certiorari in the Supreme Court, something they fully intend to do.
"Today marks a monumental turning point in our case for equality," said the American Foundation for Equal Rights in a statement following news of the ruling. "AFER's federal constitutional challenge to Proposition 8 is now entering its final stage...Now, there are only two things that could happen: 1. Couples start getting married again in California; or 2. Our case for marriage equality goes to the U.S. Supreme Court."
