If you don’t get email alerts from defender411@cpda.org you ought to. ¬†They just emailed that the Cal Supreme Court issued a stay (see below) on the implementation of Prop. 66–the proposition that speeds up the death penalty and is terrible and awful and unconstitutional. Here’s the word:

 

Petitioners’ “Motion for Leave to File Amended and Renewed Petition for Extraordinary Relief, ” filed on December 19, 2016, is granted. The Clerk is directed to file the “Amended and Renewed Petition for Extraordinary Relief, ” and “Petitioner’s Motion for Judicial Notice in Support of Petition for Writ of Mandate, ” received on December 19, 2016. In order to provide time for further consideration of the amended petition for writ of mandate and to permit the filing and consideration of papers in opposition to the petition, the implementation of all provisions of Proposition 66, approved by the voters on November 8, 2016, as certified by the Secretary of State on December 16, 2016, is hereby stayed. Respondents must serve and file their preliminary oppositions to the petition no later than January 9, 2017. Petitioners may serve and file a reply to the oppositions no later than January 23, 2017. Cantil-Sakauye, C.J., and Chin, J., were recused and did not participate.
