I assume the ruling is effective immediately, but I can't
find anything to confirm that.

Effective in 30 days according to NPR.

Unless they can be convinced to hold the ruling until after November elections.

"Here, we decide only the scope of the equal protection guarantee under the
state Constitution, which operates independently of the federal Constitution. (See
Cal. Const., art I, § 24 [“Rights guaranteed by this Constitution are not dependent
on those guaranteed by the United States Constitution”].) Absent a compelling
justification, our state government may not deny a right as fundamental as
marriage to any segment of society."

sweet!

you guys don't have any kind of stupid-assed "if your marriage isn't legal in your state you can't do it here" laws like MA's outdated yet suddenly current antimiscegenation law, do you?

Yes, there is such a law. Passed by referendum not too long ago.

Not clear what effect this ruling will have on that.

Congrats. We almost succeeded last year in Washington, but today's victory in California was the 100% real deal.
