Judicial Watch Statement on California Supreme Court Ruling that Overturns Traditional Marriage

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton issued the following statement today in response to today’s ruling by the California Supreme Court that imposes same-sex marriage on the state of California:

“Today, a bare majority of the California Supreme Court, in an audacious political power grab, usurped the democratic process by redefining marriage. The laws of this nation rely on the proper functioning of the courts, including a proper balance of powers, and the judiciary’s ability to demonstrate restraint. This ruling undermines the rule of law. I’m sure bigamists and other ‘polyamorists’ will take solace in this activist and radical ruling because, if its logic is followed, it will be difficult to keep marriage legally limited to only two people.”

Judicial Watch filed an amicus brief with the California Supreme Court that asked it to uphold the traditional definition of marriage. The brief, available here, noted that “judges are not free to rewrite statutes to say what they would like or what they believe to be better social policy.”
