The San Diego County clerk has asked the state Supreme Court to block California from issuing licenses to gay and lesbian couples across the state, arguing that the District Court’s ruling on Proposition 8 only applies to the two couples specifically named in the case, as well as officials in Alameda and Los Angeles Counties, where the couples attempted to marry.

County Clerk Ernest J. Dronenburg Jr., who is in charge of issuing marriage licenses for the county, asked for an injunction against same-sex marriage licenses until the court considers who whether or not the District Court’s ruling applies to gay and lesbian couples across the board.
