California

Proposition 8 Cases: Strauss, et al. v. Horton, et al.; City and County of San Francisco, et al. v. Horton, et al.; Tyler, et al. v. State, et al.

These actions were filed to request an immediate stay or injunctive relief to halt Proposition 8 from taking effect, claiming that the measure was an illegal constitutional revision, not merely an amendment to the constitution.

Petitioners filed a petition for writ of mandate in the California Supreme Court.
