US Supreme Court to consider Guam lawsuit on same-sex marriage
A federal appeals court is poised to hear arguments in a challenge to a California ban on same‑sex marriage.
The Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco is expected to rule on Tuesday whether California’s Proposition 8 was unconstitutional, according to the Associated Press.
It’s a major win for the gay marriage community and would have broad implications for gay couples in California.
The court’s ruling could set the stage for a potential nationwide appeal, which could have ramifications for other states where same-year marriages have been banned.
The US Supreme is expected soon to hear oral arguments in the challenge to Proposition 8, which bans gay marriages in California but does not recognize same-gender marriages.
