White nights anniversary, Prop 8 ruling imminent?

NewsomThe SF police were deploying barricades around the Castro yesterday, most likely in anticipation of a ruling from the state Supreme Court on Prop 8, and possibly linked with today’s anniversary of the “White Night” riots – May 21, 1979 – when the court handed down the most lenient sentence to Dan White for his murders of Harvey Milk and George Moscone.

Towleroad reported that Mayor Newsom had asked the Court to delay release of its ruling so as not to coincide with the anniversary – and this has been denied by the Mayor’s Office (via Towleroad).
