California Supreme Court Rules on Proposition 8

Hosted by

In May of last year, the California State Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage.  In November, the state's voters banned the practice by passing Proposition 8. In the meantime, 18,000 gays and lesbians were married. Today, the Court issued two controversial decisions. While it upheld the ban, it also upheld the same-sex marriages that took place between the Court's previous ruling and the passage of Prop 8. Maura Dolan covers the courts for the Los Angeles Times.
