San Diego clerk drops same-sex marriage challenge

A San Diego clerk has withdrawn his petition to block same-sex marriages from continuing in the state, in order to clear the way for the California Supreme Court to decide on a similar bid filed by ProtectMarriage, the group that sponsored Proposition 8.

"Because I am dropping my action, the California Supreme Court can start tomorrow in making a decision in the lead case," County Clerk Ernie Dronenburg said in a statement.
