"A local executive does not possess that authorit y"

-- From a very very quick skim of the opinion(s).

CA Supreme Court says Newsom was wrong to disregard CA statute unconstitutional, since the court had not actually admitted the statute to be unconstitutional.

Local officials are directed to uphold the statute barring gay marriage until or unless the statute is determined to be unconstitutional (by a court...not a local executive).

The marriages performed between same-sex partners have been annulled.
