MODIFICATION OF OPINION
THE COURT:
The majority opinion herein, filed on May 26, 2009, is modified as follows:
1. In response to the requests for modification filed by petitioners in S168047 and
S168078, the following paragraph is added at the end of footnote 26 (appearing on p. 96 of the
filed opinion):
“In petitions for rehearing, petitioners point out that the amendment/revision issue was
among the numerous issues raised in the briefs filed in another case involving Proposition 14
that was decided one month after Mulkey v. Reitman (Hill v. Miller (1966) 64 Cal.2d 757), but


in Hill this court affirmed the trial court’s rejection of the plaintiff’s lawsuit without addressing
that issue (id. at pp. 759-760), and petitioners acknowledge that the amendment/revision issue
was not raised by any party in Mulkey, the lead case challenging Proposition 14.”
2. On the court’s own motion, the following paragraph is added at the end of footnote 1
(appearing on pp. 12-13 of the filed opinion):
“Finally, in New Hampshire, where the state legislature even more recently enacted
similar legislation permitting same-sex couples to marry (N.H. 2009 chs. 59-61 (161st Sess.
Gen. Ct.) enacted June 3, 2009 [H.B. Nos. 436, 310 & 73]), the state constitution also may not
be amended through the initiative process. An amendment to the New Hampshire Constitution
may be proposed either by three-fifths of the entire membership of each house of the
legislature or by three-fifths of the entire membership of a constitutional convention, and in
either case a proposed amendment becomes effective only if approved by a two-thirds vote of
the electorate at a statewide election. (N.H. Const., pt. II, art. 100.)”
The concurring and dissenting opinion by Moreno, J. herein, filed on May 26, 2009, is
modified as follows:
1. The penultimate sentence of footnote 6 on pages 16-17 that begins, “But Proposition
14 was not even challenged . . .” is modified to read: “But in Mulkey v. Reitman, Proposition
14 was not even challenged . . . .”
2. The following sentence is added at the end of footnote 6, on pages 16-17:
“Moreover, as the majority acknowledges, the issue was raised in the related case of Hill v.
Miller (1966) 64 Cal.2d 757. (Maj. opn., ante, at p. 96, fn. 26.)”
This modification does not affect the judgment.

The court issued an order to show cause in Strauss, Tyler, and City and County of San Francisco directing the parties to brief and argue the following issues: (1) Is Proposition 8 invalid because it constitutes a revision of, rather than an amendment to, the California Constitution? (See Cal. Const., art. XVIII, sections 1-4.) (2) Does Proposition 8 violate the separation of powers doctrine under the California Constitution? (3) If Proposition 8 is not unconstitutional, what is its effect, if any, on the marriages of same-sex couples performed before the adoption of Proposition 8?

Nov 19 2008Order to show cause issued
The motion for judicial notice filed in S168047 by petitioners on November 5, 2008, is GRANTED. The requests for a stay of Proposition 8 filed by petitioners in S168047 and in S168066 are DENIED. Respondent Secretary of State Bowen's request to be dismissed as a respondent in S168066 is GRANTED. (Kevelin v. Jordan (1964) 62 Cal.2d 82.) The motions to intervene in S168047, S168066, and S168078, filed on November 17, 2008, by Proposition 8 Official Proponents et al. are GRANTED. The motions to intervene in S168047, S168066, and S168078, filed on November 10, 2008, by Campaign for California Families, are DENIED. The State of California, the Attorney General, the State Registrar of Vital Statistics, and the Deputy Director of Health Information and Strategic Planning of the California Department of Public Health are ORDERED TO SHOW CAUSE before this court, when the above entitled matters are called on calendar, why the relief sought by petitioners should not be granted. The issues to be briefed and argued in these matters are as follows: (1) Is Proposition 8 invalid because it constitutes a revision of, rather than an amendment to, the California Constitution? (See Cal. Const., art. XVIII, sections 1-4.) (2) Does Proposition 8 violate the separation of powers doctrine under the California Constitution? (3) If Proposition 8 is not unconstitutional, what is its effect, if any, on the marriages of same-sex couples performed before the adoption of Proposition 8? The return is to be filed by respondents, and a brief may be filed by intervenors, in the San Francisco Office of the Supreme Court on or before Friday, December 19, 2008. A reply may be filed by petitioners in the San Francisco Office of the Supreme Court on or before Monday, January 5, 2009. Any application to file an amicus curiae brief, accompanied by the proposed brief, may be filed in the San Francisco Office of the Supreme Court on or before Thursday, January 15, 2009. Any reply to an amicus curiae brief may be filed in the San Francisco Office of the Supreme Court on or before Wednesday, January 21, 2009. Moreno, J. joins this order except that he would grant the requests to stay the operation of Proposition 8 pending this court's resolution of these matters. Kennard, J. would deny these petitions without prejudice to the filing in this court of an appropriate action to determine Proposition 8's effect, if any, on the marriages of same-sex couples performed before Proposition 8's adoption. Votes: George, C.J., Baxter, Werdegar, Chin, Moreno, and Corrigan, JJ.
Nov 20 2008Order filed
In order to avoid the unnecessary filing of multiple identical copies of amicus curiae applications and briefs, the court will consider any amicus curiae filing in S168047, S168066, or S168078, in connection with its consideration and resolution of each of these matters.
