The Associated Press is reporting that the judge presiding over the Prop 8 trial has reached a decision on whether or not California’s Proposition 8 violates the Constitutional Rights of Gays and Lesbians by denying them the right to marry.
From the story:
“Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker will issue his ruling Wednesday, said Lynn Fuller, a U.S. District Court spokeswoman.
The decision came in a lawsuit brought by two same-sex couples seeking to overturn California’s voter-approved Proposition 8, which outlaws gay marriage.
Both sides previously said an appeal was certain if Walker did not rule in their favor. The case would go first to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals then the Supreme Court if the high court justices agree to review it.
Walker presided over a 13-day trial that was the first in federal court to examine if states can prohibit gays from getting married.”
