It appears from the media reports that the 'unconstitutional' part of it is that it is an overly-beauracratic system prone to delays and unpredictability, not, you know, the fact that it's ethically wrong (IMHO) to kill someone, even if they have killed someone else. But hey! Progress is progress!

The ruling can still be appealed in the 9th Circuit court of Appeals. But there may also be another ballot initiative this year to end the death penalty, in which case the court ruling would probably be moot.
