California Court Rejects Another Bid to Stop Gay Marriages

California’s highest court is again refusing to immediately stop the state from sanctioning same-sex marriages.

The California Supreme Court on Tuesday rejected a request by the elected government official in charge of issuing marriage licenses in San Diego County for an order halting gay marriages, which resumed in the state last month.

Clerk Ernest Dronenburg Jr. sought the stay on Friday, when he also asked the court to consider his legal argument that same-sex marriages remain illegal in most of California despite a U.S. Supreme Court decision widely regarded as authorizing them.

The state high court has asked for more written arguments on that issue.

The court last week rejected a similar request for a temporary hold on same-sex marriages from the sponsors of the state’s voter-approved gay marriage ban.
