California Supreme Court Blocks State Splitting Ballot Measure


Recommended Posts

The California Supreme Court decided today to remove Prop 9, which would have split the state into three pieces, from the ballot. The court decided that "significant questions have been raised regarding the proposition’s validity and because we conclude that the potential harm in permitting the measure to remain on the ballot outweighs the potential harm in delaying the proposition to a future election.”

 

The court didn't rule on the constitutionality of the proposition, but did say that they will issue a ruling. It seems almost inconceivable to me that they'd rule it constitutional. Not that it would be impossible to split the state, but that a state ballot measure could have any such effect.
