California Gay Marriages Are On Hold


Judge Vaughn’s decision on Prop 8 earlier this month would have permitted same-sex marriages to resume in California as early as Wednesday, but a federal appeals court in San Francisco, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, has blocked same-sex marriages in the state until the three-judge panel makes a ruling. The appeals court will begin hearing arguments on the constitutional challenge to Prop 8 December 6. [CNN, WSJ]
