The U.S. Supreme Court on Sunday denied a final request from Proposition 8 supporters to halt issuance of same sex marriage licenses in California.
Justice Anthony Kennedy rejected the appeal with no additional comment.
Dozens of same-sex weddings have taken place in the state since Friday, following the Supreme Court’s decision last week to dismiss Proposition 8.
Prop 8 controversially banned gay marriage in the state in 2008, only to be thrown out by appellate courts on grounds that such a ban is unconstitutional.
The SCOTUS, which also struck down DOMA, determined that the Prop 8 petitioners lacked sufficient grounds to appeal the lower courts' decision.
