Ruling on Prop. 8 Today

The U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals today issued a ruling that Proposition 8 in California was unconstitutional by banning same-sex marriages. With this ruling (by 2-1) the Court of Appeal upheld the previous ruling by judge Vaughn R. Walker on August 4, 2010.

The ruling today was stayed in anticipation of an appeal, so same-sex marriages will not resume yet.

It is expected that the ruling will be appealed to the Supreme Court of the United States.
