Supreme Court Clears Way for Gay Marriage in Calif.

Gay-Marriage

By MARK SHERMAN, Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court has cleared the way for same-sex marriage in California by holding that defenders of California’s gay marriage ban did not have the right to appeal lower court rulings striking down the ban.

The court’s 5-4 vote Wednesday leaves in place the initial trial court declaration that the ban is unconstitutional.

California officials probably will rely on that ruling to allow the resumption of same-sex unions in about a month’s time.
