Appeals Court Rules Same-Sex Marriage Ban Unconstitutional
SAN FRANCISCO — A federal appeals court has ruled that California’s voter-approved ban on same-sex marriage violates the U.S. Constitution.
In a 2-1 decision, the three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that a lower court was correct in a 2010 decision ruling that Proposition 8 was a violation of the civil rights of gays and lesbians.
It’s unclear on when gay marriages may resume in California. Prop 8 supporters have said that they would appeal an unfavorable ruling to the U.S. Supreme Court.
