The article reports on the denial by a Superior Court judge in California of all parties' motions for summary judgment in California's $3b Stem-Cell Bond Case. The judge set the stage for a 2006 trial to determine the legality of a $3 billion ballot authorization for California bonds to finance stem-cell medical research under the state's constitution. While the plaintiffs are motivated by religious and ethical objections to the use of embryonic stem cells in medical research, their legal arguments put emphasis on the legality of the governing structure and financing arrangements for the stem-cell institute.
