Prop 8 Opponents Take Battle to Court

Opponents of Proposition 8, the ballot initiative that sought to eliminate gay marriage in California, haven't conceded that they have been beaten yet. Today a petition was filed in the California Supreme Court and a large amount of ballots are reportedly still unaccounted for.
"The petition charges that Proposition 8 is invalid because the initiative process was improperly used in an attempt to undo the state constitution's core commitment to equality for everyone," reported the Sacramento Bee today. "Kate Kendall, executive director of the National Center for Lesbian Rights, said 3 million to 4 million ballots remain uncounted statewide."
Proposition 8 passed with over 400,00 votes, according to California Secretary of State records.
