"Mixed ruling on sex offender residency law"

The San Diego Union-Tribune covers today's California Supreme Court opinion here:

The state Supreme Court left the door open Monday to contentions that strict restrictions on where some registered sex offenders can live are unconstitutional, but turned away other legal challenges to a 2006 law that toughened laws against sexual crimes.

The mixed ruling marked the second time in a week that the high court took up questions of how to deal with the state’s sex offenders under Proposition 83, passed by voters in 2006.

The court's opinion is here.
