AP: Supreme Court to Review Prop 8
WASHINGTON (AP) - The Supreme Court will take up California's ban on same-sex marriage, a case that could give the justices the chance to rule on whether gay Americans have the same constitutional right to marry as heterosexuals.
The justices said Friday they will review a federal appeals court ruling that struck down the state's gay marriage ban, though on narrow grounds. The San Francisco-based appeals court said the state could not take away the same-sex marriage right that had been granted by California's Supreme Court.
Public Advocate of the US, Inc. has filed a request for a "Friends of the Court" previously and looks forward to this request being granted now that the Supreme Court has decided to hear the case.
