murder of his pregnant wife lacy. >> the last time california executed an inmate was in 2006. some in the legal community doubt today's ruling the affect death row. >> leslie brinkley is live now to explain exactly why. leslie? >> reporter: the california supreme court today, dan, overruled a constitutional challenge to prop 66, the death penalty initiative passed by voters last november that was supposed to speed up the death penalty process. california's 750 inmates on death row wait an average of 16 years for a qualified attorney to take their appeals case. it can then take decades for the case to pass through the appeals process. prop 66 was pitched to voters as a fix for that. at the heart of it? a mandatory five-year limit for the supreme court to complete appeals. >> the proponents of the
6:01 pm
proposition, the defenders of the proposition conceded to everybody's surprise, certainly to my surprise, that the five-year limitation was wildly impractical and probably unenforceable. they recharacterized that five-year limit not as a mandatory deadline, but as an aspiration. >> reporter: speeding up the process was no longer mandatory, the constitutionality of prop 66 was upheld by the california supreme court by a vote of 5-2. but it doesn't address the logjam in finding qualified attorneys to represent death penalty cases. essentially what we're getting is a process more vulnerable to mistakes, because attorneys that are not experts on doing this kind of litigation that is very specialized are going to have to start doing it. >> reporter: this criminal justice expert said more cases could end up in federal court and the approximately 18 inmates now on death row who have exhausted all of their appeals could face execution in another year to year and a half.
6:02 pm
as for the rest? >> prop 66 on its major provision at least was an expression of sentiment and has almost no legal effect whatsoever. >> reporter: in san francisco, i'm leslie brinkley, abc 7 news. the sole plaintiff in that lawsuit once fought to have the death penalty reinstated in the 1970s, ron briggs is now a death penalty abolitionist and strongly opposed to seeing put people to death. >> this certainly leads the way, it opens the door, in my opinion, it opens the door to the path of executing an innocent person. >> briggs plans to continue his fight putting initiatives on the ballot until the death penalty is overturned. california voters defeated a proposition to end the death penalty. 52% to 48%. b.a.r.t. is recovering from delays after a person was hit and killed on the tracks in san leandro. it happened about 2:45 this afternoon. the station was closed for more
