The following is a message from Pride@State:

"As we continue to await the CA Supreme Court's ruling on the Proposition 8 case, preparations are in place for the "Day of Decision". The court must rule by June 4, and only hands down decisions on Mondays and Thursdays. The court will give just one business day's notice before issuing a ruling (so if the decision will be on a Monday, we'll find out on the preceding Friday around 10 a.m.; and if they will rule on a Thursday, we'll know that a decision is coming the preceding Wednesday at 10 a.m.).

If you received any notifications today through sources like Perez Hilton (who has since retracted his report) or others, NO DECISION has yet been released... Articles from one year ago today were recirculating. Today is the anniversary of the overturn of Prop 22, which was legislation (passed in 2000) that made marriage in California be only recognized between a man and a woman. That was overturned a year ago today, BUT then Prop 8 was put on the ballot, and sadly, passed. Again, NO DECISION HAS BEEN HANDED DOWN YET.

Status updates are available on the state court's website at

We are getting down to the line and know that within the next couple weeks, we will have a decision. Undoubtedly, it will be a very emotional day, no matter which way the decision goes. Please be prepared to participate in "Day of Decision" events within a day's notice. Win or lose, San Diegans will gather at the corner of 6th & Laurel on the "day" at 5 p.m. Check out for more information. Please spread the word and be ready to celebrate or protest (fingers crossed for celebration!)."
